Who Here Remembers What We Called These Kinds of Pennies?


Do you recognize the pennies in the photo above? I'm sure most people have come across a few of them in their lifetimes, but do you remember what they were commonly referred to as?

These pennies are Lincoln pennies which have been in circulation for over 100 years, but from 1909 to 1958, the pennies featured two stalks of wheat on the reverse side and were called "wheat pennies."

Do you still have any wheat pennies around? Some of them are actually worth a pretty penny!
