What was the first coin you ever found with a metal
detector? For the great majority of us, it was a Lincoln
penny. There are more Lincoln pennies out there right now
than all the other coins combined.
How much do you know about the Lincoln cent?
Who was responsible for its being issued?
Why was it such a gutsy move?
And who was Viktoras Barnauskas and why was he important?
These questions and more are answered in this program about the lowly Lincoln penny.
And please check out the ad for my book (which I wrote myself) (the ad AND the book) at http://treasuremanual.com. Guaranteed to make you chuckle!
P.S. Thanks to eagle-eyed (or rather, eagle-eared) Coin Magnet of coinhunting.net for catching a mistake in the show - I said "buffalo nickel" when I should have said "Liberty nickel."
