The Lincoln Mint Life Of (Abraham) Lincoln set of 24 Sterling Silver Coins and Autobiographical NarrativeApproximately 24 Troy Ounces Total (23.96)Up for sale is this rare find! You are offerding on two bound books titled "The Life of Lincoln". One of the books holds 24 39-millimeter medals/coins dedicated to the life of Abraham Lincoln. The series of "medals" is produced in Solid Sterling Silver by the Lincoln Mint, Chicago. The other book is an "Autobiographical Narrative" about the life of Abraham Lincoln composed by the Schori Press, Evanston. The original drawing for each of the "medals" precedes the chapter of the book in which it is described. The printing of the book and "medals" is limited to ten thousand copies of which this is number 892. The last page of the book (shown in the last picture) is marked #892, and this number corresponds with the number "0892" marked on the side of each of the medals/coins. Each coin is also marked "Sterling" on the side, but is difficult to see due to tarnish on some of the coins. I weighed each coin individually, and all at once. Some coins weighed slightly over 1 troy ounce, while others weighed slightly less than one troy ounce. The total weight of all 24 coins is pictured in the second picture as approximately 23.96 troy ounces. The scale that I have is pretty cheap, and does not seem to weigh consistently. My guess is that each coin is intended to weigh one troy ounce each. Since I cannot be certain, it is being sold as 23.96 troy ounces total as is. This is a rare find in a complete collection such as this one. It would make a great addition to any collection, or is highly valuable in the weight of silver alone.The medals/coins are in great condition, and have tarnish. The narrative book is in excellent condition with the binding and all pages intact. There are no rips tears, or bends to any of the pages. The outside covers of both folders have areas of surface scuffs and/or scratches, as does the box that holds both folders.Please ask any additional questions prior to offerding. I am by no means an expert, but have done my best to accurately describe this item. Please refer to the pictures as they are intended to provide insight into the condition of this item. I am only willing to ship to the 48 contiguous states. This item will be insured when shipped, and will require direct signature confirmation of delivery. Thank you for looking, offer with confidence!
