    What I have learned is anything that I get my hands on that is old I check every nook and cranny of it for anything else that may have been from that era.

    In this case I found a 1930 Watling Fortune Scale which I also have listed in my collection here. I started searching the middle compartment of it for stuff. Low and behold on the bottom right of the inside of the scale behind the compartment that the pennies were supposed to be captured there was a pile of wheat pennies with one dating back to 1911. And one from 1918, some from the 20's, 30's, 40's, and early 50's. The one from 1911 is the 3rd one over from the top right.

    I thought this might be a story all of you enjoy. Thank you for looking and have a blessed day! : )

      Jackpot! I was recently looking through old letters that my grandparents sent to each other while my grandfather was in the Navy during WWII and in one of them that my grandmother sent my grandfather, was a card with a slot for a penny, a nickel, a dime, and a quarter. The 1943 "War Nickel" was still in it, in almost mint condition.
