Indian Head Pennies Before Abraham Lincoln's portrait was featured on American one-cent coins, the design on the coin was the Indian Head. The attractive design was created by James Longacre. Rumor has it that Longacre used his daughter's likeness for the face. They were minted in the millions from 1859 to 1909. Because so many were put into circulation, they are still relatively cheap to acquire from coin dealers.

Stay Awhile The Bells Hi all. Sorry I had to take a break from the site as my daughter was going through some turmoil and needed my attention. I hope all is well friends. I have to share an experience that was way beyond cool for me. I have recently been granted access to a local music studio that my nephewís rock band rents space in and I have been writing songs and practicing guitar up there for a couple of weeks now. Last Thursday night, I went to the studio, and was let in by my friend Tim. He was sitting with a friend, and I set off to the smoking room before I went to work. Tim and his friend come up, and we start talking. After about 10 minutes, I realize that Iíve seen Timís friend before, but couldnít place him. Then he made a comment about when he plays a certain song in concert, some people are really surprised to hear that he wrote it. The song is this one here, Stay Awhile, and the manís name is Ken Tobias. I couldnít believe it. This man had a string of Canadian hits in the mid 70s, and wrote this song that The Bells made famous. He is originally from here, but after a few years in Toronto and LA, he made the decision to come back home to live. He hung out with us all night, and was as cool as could be. A surreal moment came when sitting in Timís office, I looked across at Ken sitting on a couch and saw right above his head, a framed and signed album cover from him featuring his portrait from 1976. It was a night that I will remember for a long time. He is still very active in the local music scene here, and still performs occasionally. If we cross paths again, I must get a pic taken with him. I will post a Ken Tobias video later on, but I always loved this song. Very pretty melody. Thanks for letting me share a cool memory for me friends.

Susan B Anthony Dollar This coin didn't flip--it flopped! With great fanfare in 1979, the United States Treasury Department minted millions of $1 coins featuring a portrait of suffragette Susan B. Anthony on the obverse. Americans were used to dealing with dollar bills--which were still being produced--so the coins were largely shunned. Moreover, their size made them easily confused with quarters. The dollar was minted again in 1980 with little success. In 1981 it was minted solely for collectors' sets. The Susan B. Anthony dollar was reissued in 1999 to meet the demand of vending machines that required dollar coins for change, but they are still generally detested by the public.

Franklin Half Dollar From 1948 through 1963, some 510 million American half dollars bearing the portrait of Benjamin Franklin were minted. They were replaced by Kennedy half dollars in 1964. I've never understood why half dollars fell out of favor as an everyday currency. To me they seem at least as practical as quarters.

An Interview with George W Bush Portrait Artist It's not every day you meet an artist that paints the President of the United State portrait that will hang in the Smithsonian Institute. I had the pleasure of interviewing Mr. Robert Anderson at his studio and find out some interesting insights to our very soon to be former president.

100 000-Dollar Gold Certificate You don't see too many of these circulating nowadays. Woodrow Wilson's portrait appears on this $100,000 gold certificate from 1934. Such banknotes were almost exclusively used for transferring funds between Federal Reserve banks. This denomination is no longer printed, but it is still legal tender. Since 1969, the $100 bill has been the largest denomination banknote printed in the United States.

Dawn - Portrait of a Teenage Runaway In 1976, Eve Plumb, two years removed from The Brady Bunch, played the lead role in the made-for-TV movie Dawn: Portrait of a Teeange Runaway. It aired on Monday, September 27, 1976. The previous year NBC had been successful with Sarah: Portrait of a Teenage Alcoholic. Accordingly, another movie about bad teen lifestyle choices was made. In this one, Eve Plumb (who was 18 at the time) played Dawn Wetherby, a naive 15-year-old girl who leaves her single-parent, alcoholic, domineering mother for the bright lights of LA. Not long afterwards, she is forced to fend for herself as a street prostitute. The movie was successful enough to merit a sequel called Alexander: The Other Side of Dawn. Because Plumb was committed to her made-for-TV movies, she could not participate in the much-maligned Brady Bunch Variety Hour and avoided that catastrophe.
