Jul 8 - Man Cashes in 1.4 million Pennies
 

 
Edmond Knowles started saving pennies 38 years ago. He was storing them in four 55-gallon drums and three 20-gallon drums - nearly 1.4 million in all.

Knowles, who runs a gas station, cashed them in Wednesday, pocketing $13,804.59 after they were counted. "It's just something that happened," he said. "I started so long ago that I don't even remember why. Customers would come by and say: 'Ed, throw these in your drum'."

Coinstar Inc., a company that maintains coin-counting machines in banks and supermarkets, said Knowles' 1,380,459 pennies breaks the record of 1,048,013 previously held by Eugene Sukie of Barberton, Ohio.

Coinstar spokesman George White said the company's research and U.S. Census data indicate that coins worth more than $10 billion are sitting idle in American homes. White said the amount collected by Knowles is about the same amount that passes through a person's hands over the years. "Ed just took the time to close his hand," said White.

^ oh sh*t, I read it wrong. Hahaha.. I thought it said he cashed in 1.4 million DOLLARS in pennies over 38 years. Goes to show you should read the article instead of just the headline when replying

"Ill Even Take The Pennies With The Green Spots On Them" - Afroman

I wont be keeping all my coins, i dont have room for that, but i dont use any of my change, i just go home and put it in my little Radiers Helmet. Pennies, I Made A Little Slit In A 50cd-r spindle and just throw them in there.

In a month I have about $30, so multiply that by 12, learned that from my uncle.

My homie throws away his pennies, and im like , and his pops banks in like $500 at the end of the year, and uses that for Christmas.

ive been savin pennies ALL the time but im not a crackhead like this dude keepin em at home n sh*t. I just carry it around in my wallet, ill pick em up if i see em i dont give a fu*k. That sh*t comes in handy when im just buyin somethin for a couple of bucks n the taxes make it like 1.15 instead of 1 so i just bring out them pennies for the 5 or 15 cents....all my boys is always laughin bout that sh*t sayin im a cheapass but i dont see anythin cheap bout it, just keepin my own damn money n whatever i find
