A penny portrait of you know who

Finally, a way to get rid of some of those pennies!

Jeff Haber and his teen son Danny used $24 worth to make a portrait of - who else? - Abraham Lincoln. Inspired by a similar portrait that Jeff Haber had seen in a Florida museum, the effort took nearly two months of gluing pennies in the right positions to make the image. They used pennies both for the obvious symbolism and because pennies can be found in different shades, thanks to wear and tear.

The portrait, the third one they've done, is being donated to Danny Haber's high school.

They still have plenty of pennies left over.
