    Maybe the OP is from the northeast?

    Then it would have been pronounced quarta.

    I was thinking it was the use of sale vs. sell...... I want to sale my coin.... I see visions of masts & sails popping out and riding the high seas.

    I think the most frequently misspelled is cent, often written as penny. :D

    How did "cent" ever begin to be referred to as "penny"?

    I think it’s “vice job” instead of “vise job,” maybe tied with “nickle” followed closely by “there” (instead of “their”).

    Penny is the word used in English for the smallest denomination coin of any country. Pfennig, cent, centavo, etc, are all pennies. It also happens to be the official name of the smallest British coin.

    Penny has always been accepted in US vernacular. I’ve never understood numismatists’ efforts to curtail this. We all know what is meant. Just like double die instead of doubled die. Is that correction necessary? I say no. It helps zilch in terms of relating numismatics. That is, of course, my opinion.

    Totally agree. I was pointing fun at all those who are so persnickety about it. That's why I had a :D after my comment.

    Meh, I'm willing to let that one slide as a British-ism. I reserve the right to snicker to myself, though.

    Actually I recently gave my niece a half-penny (ha'penny) since she thought the line in the song "Please Put A Penny In The Old Man's Hat" was just an abstraction.

    There, their, they're.

    My favorite is "butt naked" which has been bastardized from "buck naked" as in naked as an Indian buck.
