A penny doesn't buy much these days, and it shows.
It seems that most people (including me) won't even stoop to pick up a penny. If I had a penny for every penny I saw on the sidewalk or on the stairs, I'd be a ... well I'd be at least a centanaire.
Silver coins obviously are more popular. I rarely see nickels, dimes or quarters lying about.
And dollar bills? A rare bread, but not unheard of.
I'll slow down for anything with a green or silver glint, but I leave the copper for toddlers and their piggy banks. What about you?
