Got a haircut today for 2 bits
Was out on errands with my wife today. Was in small village & 1 street has 4 banks on it. I took a chance & stopped at the four banks. I did my usual spiel about looking for half dollars rolled or loose. The teller at the 1st bank said she had a old coin & handed it to me. It was the only half she had. It was a 1915 S Barber half. It's in a very worn condition but the date is strong & you can read the S on the back. Part of the words United & America on the back are worn off. This is only the 2nd Barbar half I have gotten since I started coion roll hunting in Dec 2010. The rest of the banks gave me 4 rolls of halfs along with $8.50 loose. They were all skunks. Finding the Barber made up for them.

SFB got a fake barber from a teller tray.
1/100 of an American dollar is a cent. It is NOT a penny. The word penny is used by several other countries, such as Great Britain, to denote their smallest denomination. In order to be numismatically correct, you must use the term cent to describe the American coin.
