By Dane Carlson on January 9, 2012 in News
You know what they say: “a penny saved is a penny earned,” especially if you can hang onto it for 219 years.
In Orland last weekend, a penny minted during the first year of the US Mint’s service, in 1793, sold at auction for $1.38 million.
According to James Halperin, of Heritage Auction, the sale was “the most a United States copper coin has ever sold for at auction.”
