It was 1862, and along with 28,074,999 other pennies, a brand new Indian Head Penny was minted. The coin was shiny and was proud of it's whitening color. The coin was put in a bag and was brought to a nearby bank, where it sat for about six months. Finally someone came and took the penny along with 49 others and went home. The Coin was happy to be moving to a new environment.
