When finding this penny in the collection I was astonished we had anything this old. I read the date to my dad and we both looked at each other with surprise and excitement.
I asked my dad why there was a whole on the top and he said it was because people used to wear them as fashion jewelry. It is ashame that they did because they probably could have had a "pretty penny" for it. (No pun intended)
