    That is pretty cool to have, whether it's worth money or not

    We have some pre-Columbian artifacts carved out of stone that are pretty cool too. Hogs heads, duppy houses, stuff like that. I have no idea what, if anything, they're worth

    i was thinking aboot all of the things this penny has probably bought an all the places it's been. i bet it bought a hoar in boston, a chinese laborer in san francisco, an a car in ohio in 1931. cool beanzies.

    post pics a your artifects! pre-columbian shit would be super cool.

    true, but having just a few a them, it's worth more to me to keep them. it would be great it i had 100,000 a them.

    Your penny is worth 340X it's initial value :p

    This isn't the best pic I just snapped it a while ago when someone was fucking with me about my pet potatoes lol

    Hogs heads are on the far left and right, duppy houses are in the middle. They wash up in the gullies when it rains here :)

    the dupy houses look a lot like 20th century automobiles. the pre-columbus peoples a the carribean were fucking brilliant! :c

    i think that's cool shit, for realzies. it boggles my mind when i think aboot every place an person who probably touches stuff like that or the penny. or with your stuff, the person/people who made it.
