Childhood Treasures - Indian Head Pennies

I was about eight when I discovered I had a talent the other members of my family seemed to lack. I could spy pennies on the ground! I especially liked finding Indian Head pennies featuring an Indian profile with a headdress on the front; the back bore a wreath with “one cent” spelled out. I also found pennies showing Abraham Lincoln. Whoever had lived on the farm before must have been careless, for I’d gaze at the ground and sometimes find one. I’d check the date and marvel at some of their ages. Being able to keep the pennies for myself doubled my pleasure!
