Wheat pennies were made in the United States from 1909 to 1956. A friend was eager to share her wheat penny story with me. She and her sister were at the hospital visiting another sister who was fighting cancer. The two sisters went to the cafeteria to get lunch. While eating, one received a call and pushed her tray aside. When she pulled the tray back in front of her, she found a wheat penny sitting on the tray. The two sisters looked at each other in amazement. The coin had not been there before. When they examined the coin, they realized it was the year their ill sister had been born. Even more amazing was their dad had collected wheat pennies. Both sisters agreed that this was sign that their father was watching over his three girls from the other side. I love to receive stories like this. So if you have one to share, I’d love to hear it!
