At the last Bel Mar Coin Club Monthly Meeting my son was given a 1974 uncirculated Lincoln Cent with a profile image of President John F. Kennedy engraved onto the Cent so the 2 Presidents are facing each other on the Obverse of the coin. (see the scanned image below)
Here are the Astonishing Coincidences with these 2 Presidents:

Both men were slain on a Friday in the presence of their wives

Both of their successor’s were named Johnson; Andrew Johnson was born in 1808, and Lyndon Johnson was born in 1908.
Booth and Oswald were both Southerners favoring unpopular ideas.
Oswald shot Kennedy from a Warehouse and hid in a Theater.
Booth shot Lincoln in a Theater and hid in a Warehouse.
