It is funny that you can judge things by a penny... But my hubby has done so ... I collect wheat pennies, I've done this ... well ... as long as I can remember. When I work as a cashier I found a few here and there ... about 12 or 15 a year ... but now 'all of a sudden' I'm finding wheat pennies each time I turn around. or I have found 12 wheat pennies in the last few days. Hubby thinks this is a sign of the times ... people are hurting and digging into very old piggy banks, l must agree ... somerthing is going on !!! My question would be 'how my people see the signs?'
