    Re: Pennies...seriously, they're stressing me out

    Honestly, a pennie isn't worth crap anymore. I've tossed them away more than once. I've seen them lying about everywhere. No one will ever bend over and pick one up. When you dig one that has been in the ground a short time and it's corroded away then you know it is made out of %$#@. Kids have more than enough money nowadays, and besides, What can you buy for a penny?

    I have a bad back. Bending over and walking are the two exercises associated with detecting. Detecting is the reason I am not yet in a rocking chair! If I'm going to take the time to walk and bend... damn it, I'm keeping those pennies! The reason you are finding the pennies and not the dimes and quarters is because others have passed on the pennies. TTC

    Re: Pennies...seriously, they're stressing me out

    Finds are getting harder to come by and pennies are the majority of what I dig up anymore. I guess thats the coin that people are least likely to retrieve if they see it drop.

    Now I just wish they'd do away with the dollar bill and go with dollar coins exclusively.

    That would be a nice change.

    That's cool.
    All the indian's I have dug signaled lowered than penny. More around tab. Old tombac buttons hit around the foil area. Not much higher. That's why if you're in a historical area it pays to dig everything. Even the iron will have a story to tell.

    Re: Pennies...seriously, they're stressing me out

    The old saying is, "See a penny and pick it up, and all day you'll have good luck." That's only if it is heads up. On the other hand, I have 99 pennies at home and pick up a penny, then I have a dollar. Dollars add up, and could lead into another toy. If you pick up one dime and ten pennies, how much do you have?
    A penny saved is a penny earned.

    Re: Pennies...seriously, they're stressing me out

    Pennies are a good indicator of how much the area has been hunted. As a rule, if there has been little or no metal detecting activity there should be a distribution of all coin denominations. Nothing but pennies is a sure indicator of other people detecting there and passing them by. I admit that I am digging fewer pennies as I get older because there is a limit to how many times I can get up and down in a day.

    Re: Pennies...seriously, they're stressing me out

    I have to say, you have all given me various outlooks to consider, and I thank you. As a result, I think I'll make an effort to change my views on the penny phenomenon, and look at it as gen-u-ine US currency that can only add up...and is always a much better option than can slaw...
