One Indian Cent

How this 1903 US penny escaped notice, and wasn't pulled from circulation, is beyond me. I received this in change about a year ago. Perhaps it could be on account of its condition, that is, not very good.

It seems to me a little work of art. It has all the criteria of good design... variety, repetition, detail, interaction of positive and negative space (notan), keeps the eye moving, not to mention, excellent form, function and durability.

I often say, keep looking up, however, occasionally, look down, at your change.
