Today is Lucky penny day. Many collectors out there love their "pennies," or cents. So many began with pulling Lincoln cents out of change, looking for a 1909-S VDB, a 1914-D, or a double die. Back in the day, I heard of Indian cents turning up in change in the early 1960s. And don't forget the Flying Eagles or the large coppers.
I fell in love with the Chain cent as soon as I knew it existed. I'd just started collecting and did not know what the first cents looked like, or even that they were large cents.
