Old Pennies

While doing some gardening today, I found an old coffee can full of pennies. 
 
 
It was out in the backyard.
 
 
One of the kiddo's long lost and forgotten treasure...
 
 
...finally found.
 
 
Poor old copper Lincolns, most aren't worth very much.
 
 
 
Treasure lost but then again...
 
 
found.

  12. Lovely! Please keep it, one day it will be worth a fortune. In Canada we are phasing out our penny, cost more to produce it than it is worth.
