Old money, or new, it all spends the same.
Pennies recovered after Karamela Headgiver dropped trou during her first trip to the WH tranny-friendly bathroom? Willie Brown was notoriously cheap, when it came to the hoes he used.
I checked. Not an Indigenous People Head one in the entire lot.
And that one would be worth a hellofalot more than these junkers!
Shoulda stopped producing those about 60 years ago. Stopping tomorrow would be fine.
No, what we should do is stop and then reverse the debasement of our currency, which would solve a great many problems, including this.

Thanks for that. I use things like this to educate my kids to hate central banks in hopes they get to dissolve them.
My metaphor would be the life cycle. Start out bright and shiny across the board and progressively get worse as you go down the board to old age. Some are aging faster than others, but they all end up old.
Yup. Thats it.
I'll take all the pennies starting from the 4th row and going down. Most/all look to be real copper pennies, not the debased copper plated zinc in the first three rows.
Sorry, I cannot make heads or tails of it...
