a small antiquity

Went in to a Walgreen’s this afternoon to buy a few personal necessities, and was surprised and pleased to get a well worn “wheat penny” in my change.IMG_20140411_220255 And then I turned it over, as one does, to try to read the date, and … well.   That sure looks like a zero to me.IMG_20140411_220205

This little object, still doing its job, is well over 100 years old.

File this under “My new lucky penny: its secret origin”, and “Hey, the new phone camera does some pretty decent informal macro.”
