Some time back, when I was still a young man, I came across this ad in a tabloid. I forget what the ad was about, but it said the 1955 double die cent is still in circulation, and it apparently is worth a lot.
My question is, is it still in circulation? I mean, this is still America, where people can become rich overnight for a variety of other reasons, isn’t it? Can you imagine someone gaining a (small) fortune from a penny they got at the 7-11 have-a-penny-give-a-penny dish?
Also, don’t laugh, but I still like looking for rare coins in circulation. I still save every wheat stalk penny and bicentennial quarter I find. They may not be worth much now. But who knows what the future holds…
