The “Lincoln Penny” is 100!

It may come as some surprise to a lot of people out there, but the penny with Lincolns face on it is now 100, and much like people who reach that age, it has lost much of its use. 

Fun note, people used to pay 25 cents just to buy a “Lincoln” penny when they first showed up. Oh, how far we’ve come.

So here’s to you penny, thanks for existing, and giving me the chance to tell a joke. I salute you.

Look! They even voted for Bush. What is up with 100 year olds?
