Lucky Penny Linda talks with Scott Travers, the vice-president-elect of the American Numismatic Association and the author of "Find a Fortune in Your Pocket Change: One-Minute Coin Expert." They discuss the highly-valued penny that Travers spent this afternoon in Manhattan. The coin is the first of 10 that will be put back into circulation in the next ten days. Travers's group is randomly distributing valuable coins throughout the city as change, in hopes that people...interested in finding a fortune...will consider examining their pocket change more closely and become more interested in coin-collecting.
