Do you like or dislike the new Lincoln stamps? Some have expressed that they are too dark, not vibrant enough, and just not good enough for this great man. Others have said that they have both a contemporary look and a classic look with the scene and sketch board bust. I am bias of course, being a Lincoln Topical collector.

Will you be adding them to your collection? Will you be using them for postage?
...and will they be a good soaker for used stamp collectors?

I like them. However, they seem a little too dark and somber. I will definitely buy a few sheets and use them on my mail.
I was lucky to get a non-philatelic first day cover that I rescued from my wife's incoming mail.
