When is a penny worth a million dollars?

When it’s a 1795 reeded-edge U.S. penny, one of only seven known to exist. It recently sold for nearly $1.3 million at auction—the first time a one-cent coin has cracked the million-dollar price barrier.

It follows the sale earlier this year of a high-end collection of rare half-dollars that fetched $1.1 million at auction. At the same time, popular $20 U.S. Saint-Gaudens gold pieces from the early 20th century are commanding $1,700 apiece, sight unseen, in decent, though not perfect condition, topping a record high last seen more than two decades ago.

  3. Remember, if you make a good impression at the school, you may
    be able to ask for a reference to include in your application.
    Someone who has recently been through the application process can often offer valuable information
    about what is particularly important to include.

    Finally, if neither of these options is sufficient to meet your need
    for enjoyable, fulfilling and satisfying work, then
    your only way out is to engage in a robust midlife career change
    process.

  4. What you believe about the food you eat determines how
    it affects your body. Once approved by the
    FDA, an insured teen will pay only $2,000 to $4,000 for the surgery.
    The weight loss also reduces their risk for several
    diseases.

  5. Howdy! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering if you knew where I could find a captcha plugin for my comment form?
    I’m using the same blog platform as yours and I’m having difficulty finding one?
    Thanks a lot!
