…Mike and Annie love pennies?

Penny Man

Mike and Annie Moore really took the saying “a penny saved is a penny earned” to heart, and saved and earned an estimated million of them to cover their McKittrick, California bar with. What started as a hobby turned into a passion, and the couple collected (or was given) over $10,000 worth of pennies, including an 1883 Indian head penny, their prized possession. The collection has tired them out though, and they’ve put the place up for sale with an $899,999.98 as is price tag. Given the rising cost of copper though, it could be an investment worth making.
