Penny Harvest

I harvested this wonderful old penny yesterday while digging in the garden. The house was built in 1907 so the coin may have been in the ground ever since. Henry and I spent an exciting few minutes with Google hoping we had found something rare before figuring out that an 1897 Indian Head is worth about a dollar. Oh well. This means that we get to keep it as an archeological treasure and a bit of local history.
