    MILLION DOLLAR PENNY?

    One of the very first pennies produced in the U.S., estimated to be worth $1 million, will be auctioned in Baltimore next week.The 1792 Birch Cent will be auctioned by Stack’s Bowers Galleries at the Whitman Expo in Baltimore on Oct. 26.












    Commissioned by Thomas Jefferson, only a handful of Birch Cents were minted as an example of what the newly-formed U.S. government was considering producing. The coins were seen first hand by Jefferson and George Washington, according to the auction house.

    Here is a link to the rest of the story with pictures:
