The Penny

So we went down to the "Sev", or as its more commonly known as 7-11. We went after the storm passed and got a diet coke. It was nice to not be knocked on my butt by all the pollen in the air. I got Kate a scratch-off lottery ticket too.

Anyway, I get the change back and its three pennies, one of which looked suspicious because I immediately thought it was one of them Canadian pennies that just never seems to fit in, but it was because the back was a "wheat penny" and not the familiar Lincoln memorial.

Turned it over and it was made in 1927.

It isn't worth a dime, haha, but it got me thinking how this penny has been making its way around the US for the last 81 years and now its here.
