    So many beautiful ones!! Thank you for that link Jim, very impressive!! I did notice only one Memorial though, as Cliff brought up, maybe not as common? I was just happy to find one in the wild!

    Jim I don't know how familiar you are with actual woodgrain but it's odd on mine, the obverse looks like normal woodgrain and the reverse looks like what they call Quarter Sawn woodgrain. Just thought it was odd.https://www.quarter-sawnflooring.com...-sawn-products

    Like that link Jon.
    (Helps to visualize quarter sawn products as well as woodies.)

    Jon, I forgot to mention that the most woodies I have are actually from the 80's but I have some from every decade of copper coins beginning with wheats. They have been fun to collect but I'm not seeing them like I used to.

    There is some thought that the tight grain like that is actually caused from contaminated rollers used to thin out the planchet stock... My opinion is that even the tight grain woodies are related to a poor mix but I don't know for sure either way... They look cool to me tho so I keep them!!!
