Check out the reverse...

















of the Lincoln penny, &
you will see the work of
the 10th Chief Engraver
of the United States,
Frank Gasparro- (8/26/09-
9/29/01)

Mr. Gasparro, whose initials
can be seen at the bottom
right corner of the Lincoln
Memorial (see above,) also
designed the obverse &
reverse of the Eisenhower
Dollar, the Susan B. Anthony
Dollar, & the reverse of the
Kennedy Half Dollar. He is
the most copied artist ever,
due to the Lincoln cent.

He worked for the U.S. Mint
as Chief Engraver/Sculptor
from 1965 to 1981...


& was every bit as kind as he
was professional.

Thank you! I attempt to learn something new each day and you’ve provided me with information on something that I had no knowledge. And, it isn’t even 5:00 a.m. yet!

Thank you, Let's Talk - you have received a link as well:)

Hi Nick - Geez, you're up early on a Saturday A.M...

Glad you liked the post - I had the pleasure of speaking with Mr. Gasparro briefly years ago, & he was a very kind gentleman...

They're very teeny, but when you have the chance, take a magnifying glass & check for his initials on the back of the penny:)
