Shadow Shot Sunday





My son took this with a microscope camera. It's the "0" in 2009 on the new penny coin. If you haven't seen one of these, they're really cool. They have Lincoln's log cabin on the back. They definitely feel lighter than the old ones though!

Thanks Hey Harriet for sponsoring this meme!

Wild! I would never have guessed!

I have not seen one yet but I'm sure they will be everywhere very soon. I read that something like 75% of all pennies made are in a jar somewhere collecting dust. .

I haven't seen one either... but given the current economic problems and that the treasury is printing money as fast as possible, it doesn't surprise me that the penny will not be as heavy as before... less copper probably.

That would have been interesting if you didn't explain and we all tried to guess. I wonder what we would have guessed?

Oh and I nearly fell of my chair when you told me about the Saltine. I had a very quick visual in my mind of my son with a large square cracker stuck up his nose. I'm still giggling :D
