You seen the 'new' penny?????

March 20th, 2009 at 11:33 am

Taken by surprise yesterday! After 50 years of pennies in my hand, it is different!!



Did you know this was in the works? I didn't. Where have I been? OK, don't answer that.

Lots of interesting info in this article such as; there will be 4 designs this year depicting Lincoln's life.

    Wow really cool.

    But I must admit, before I read the article, I thought it was a spoof to poke fun at the economic downturn. No more fancy Lincoln memorial in Washington, we are downgrading to a log cabin.

    Maybe a the log cabin will make us more humble.

    I didn't know about new pennies. Cool to see, thanks. (It took me a while to figure out what the chimney was on the cabin. It was one of those figure/ground perception problems. Weird.)

    Dont get me wrong, they look nice...but seriously?

    Very pretty. Hopefully someone will drop one on the sidewalk for me. Smile

    I'm with Thrifty Ray. We shouldn't even be using pennies any more. Kind of crazy. But yeah, I had no idea.
