55 years ago my Dad and I started my Lincoln collection. Each week when he went to the bank to cash his payroll check he would bring me $10 in penny rolls (20 rolls), and I would examine each and every penny in my look of treasures. A "treasure" was either a date/mint that I did not previously have, or a better one of one I already had. Those 2 blue books were treasures that I hid in my room, and guarded with my life. Although my Lincoln collection is now rather mature Registry set, I still have those blue books somewhere in my closet.
