SHARE If You Know What Was Special About This Coin

posted by Pedro Bartes - 

Who here collected "wheat pennies" as a kid! Extra points if you still have some! Yes, these coins were known as whet pennies. Many people kids collected them, I did. Now I wonder why we started doing that, and I don't have an answer. Why is it that it became customary for kids to collect these pennies, does anybody know? 

Please SHARE if you remember the wheat pennies......
