When a penny ain’t worth a penny, it’s an antique!

I believe this originated with the Chicago Tribune, and seems to be an editorial, but it came to me via The Valdosta State Spectator in GA, certainly one of the more obscure sources I’ve dug around on. I worked on my college paper and, let’s face it, a lot of them are pretty bad.

It is, actually, an argument you can dig up most anywhere. I just couldn’t resist a link with something from Valdosta State.

This, however, I happen to agree with. When it costs more than a penny is worth to make one, then it ain’t worth it, plus the good, collectible ones that are out there will become that much more valuable, which is good for the business of coins.

Numismatics and antiques unite! Down with the penny!
