    Hello everyone,

    This morning as I was cleaning the sidewalk in front of my job I found FOG (Found On Ground) which was a Cent.

    The interesting thing about it is that it was a Cent with a counterstamp of President Kennedy's profile.
    It's one of those novelty Items made outside of the Mint back in the early 1970's :woot:

    Nice find, and an obverse MAD too. Is that adhesive on the reverse where someone tried to stick it to the sidewalk as a joke?

    Just don't spend so much time watching the ground that you step out in front of a bus. ;)

    I keep my eye on the ground probably more than I should when I'm biking. The way I figure it, in all the bike wrecks I've had, it's always been the ground that hurt me the most...

    Good thing @paddyman98 looks down.

    Shows how desperate some people are in todays economy. They are pulling glued coins off cardboard to spend. LOL

    Speaking of that, I was shocked to see a quarter, some dimes, and a few nickels in a "take one if needed" jar at a local store. Usually it's just pennies.

    I learned about money as a kid, a long time ago, when cents mattered.

    It would be really hard for me to throw away a card with a cent still attached to it. I'd take a few seconds to pry it off -- even though I get paid more than one cent per second to do useful things.

    Same. I always pick them up. Maybe it's just the Bohemian upbringing, but it's free money.
