The Littleton Coin Co. of Littleton, N.H., has done a great service, offering 2012 presidential dollars that feature three of the more obscure leaders who just happened to sport some of the most interesting chief-executive facial hair: Chester A. Arthur, Grover Cleveland, Benjamin Harrison and Grover Cleveland again, from his second, nonconsecutive term.
But presidential-history nuts should act fast because these coins “will never be minted again,” a Littleton Coin ad declares.
The ad, with the leaders’ visages in gold splendor, sent us tumbling down a presidential rabbit hole.
What if the coins are these presidents’ last, best chance at being remembered?
