First 100 pages looked at already, but I will be doing hardly any reviving for the next two weeks.
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.

While suggestions are being made, I have a suggestion for the Please Read Before Posting Items in "What Is It?" sticky:
- Please include the type of object or a very brief description of the unidentified piece in the the subject line (coin, rock, small metal thing, rusted artifact, possible stone tool, strange goo, small aluminum ring with tearshaped attachment, etc.)
I know the wording could be improved, but believe you get the basic idea....
Most recent posts already adhere to this, but the ones which don't get annoying after I've clicked on them for the umpteenth time.
