At the beginning of my freshman year, a teacher said they would give me a “special coin” if I remembered when I graduated. I’m graduating, and so he gave me a 1943 steel wheat penny and a 1923 buffalo nickel

So, how many other students got their coins?

I remember going to the flea market as a kid and this guy had coffee can sized bucket of steel 1943 pennies. He wanted 5 cents per penny. Pff 5 cents for 1 penny? gtfoh. I want that useless plastic toy that’s going to break in a week.

Super cool. My first day of college my chem professor gave us all pocket periodic tables to hold on to with the challenge that if he met us around town he would give points if we had it on us. 20 years later almost I found him on Facebook and sent him a picture of it still in my wallet.

Coin collecting was a thing. I remember those and many others when I was a kid in the 70’s.
