Don't Clean That Old Penny (It's Art!)

This is the oldest wheat penny I have ever come across in my "digs"
1918 US wheat penny heads
I wish (while it's heads up) that it was worth something, but no. It would probably bring about .04 cents. Then I took another look at it, and saw that it was priceless. It is so worn and layered with patina, yet still maintains its identity.

To me this is art.

  1. Good find. Is this a hobby?
    I have a friend who is a garage sale hunter, loves finding such treasures too!
