One small correction: there is no such thing as an "English cent". The British coin you have there is a penny made under the pre-decimal monetary system. A true "cent" is a decimal coin (1/100).

Our United States coins that we call "pennies" are technically cents, not pennies. Still, the "penny" nickname for them has stuck. So many people have confused the terms "penny" and "cent" for so long that the terms are often used synonymously, when in fact they have two different meanings.

That is an awesome find- I really think it's neat to see how they made it into a tag and counterstamped it like that. Definitely a keeper!

We call them bunheads pennies over here, you can guess why.

This has been a fascinating thread to read…I love the remake of the penny, the history and research, the T-netters contributions to the the thread, and the search for relatives! Good find and good luck. I’ll be watching for more!

I wonder if this is his resting place…
