Massachusetts Teenager Found Coin Which Could Be Worth $1.65 Million

Rare Penny

A penny that a Massachusetts teenager found in his change from lunch money could be worth as much as $1.65 million (£1.3 million) when it is auctioned off.
A teenager found a rare copper penny, in his school lunch money in 1947 that the US government for years insisted did not exist. At the time he was only 16, and he kept the coin for his personal collection.

This past September he passed away and that penny, considered a ‘holy grail’ in coins is now going up for auction.
Only 20 of these mistakenly minted 1943 Lincoln pennies were ever made, and they are a hugely sought after collectors item. According to Heritage Auctions, which is auctioning off the coin, theres said to only be 10-15 left in existence today.
