2010/132: Indian Head Penny

From 1905! Sara found it in the coinstar. Needless to say, I traded her a much newer penny for it.

  3. What a nice Mom you are. Really, its safer in with you. Who knows where this as been in the last 105 years.

  4. It’s in pretty bad condition (as you can see) and it’s not worth much. Less than $2 TOPS!!
    But, if there are any filthy-rich people out there read this, who are looking for something to waste… Imean SPEND… their money on, I would be willing to part with it for $10,000 (pocket change, right?). Contact me if this penny is a must-have for your coin collection 😉

    Doreen, nope, I only gave her a penny.

    Very cool! I bet the coinstar wouldn’t accept it, right? I imagine the weight is different than today’s pennies.

  7. Interesting coins, I like the texture. That’s from 1905, wow…did you watch Lost last night…after each show I’m still left with so many questions. Can’t wait til the finale.

    • Of course I watched LOST! 😉 I feel the same way… they need to get serious about ANSWERING all the questions (like they promised!) instead of leaving us with more!

  8. Really neat! This coin was “born” 2 years before my grandma (who passed away a few years ago).

  9. Very cool find. I don’t know if I’d want to polish it or keep it in its current state. Oh, the stories those things could tell.
