      1465, I'm actually in a league of my own. To address your comments, I'm not much of a thrifty person, but the times I've been to a thrift store, I took advantage of some great finds.

  • Unfortunately, pennies will never be worth anything except on the collector's market for certain dates. Did you know there's one dated 1943 that's worth tens of thousands of dollars? 1943 was one of the war years and, to conserve copper, they made the pennies out of steel (a magnet will pick these up). However, a few of the copper blanks from the year before made it through the stamping process by mistake - it's these copper pennies that are worth the big money. I actually held one in my hand back around 1980 - the guy offered to sell it to me, but unfortunately, I didn't have $30,000 to spare. The opposite happened in 1944 when a steel penny was accidentally made from copper (they went back to copper in '44). I've not seen one of those personally, although they do come up for sale on ebay every once in a while. I throw my pennies in a jar but taking them to the bank to cash them in, isn't really worth the gas money.
