A rare 1943 Lincoln Penny discovered in 1947 has resurfaced and is to go on auction.

In 1947, Don Lutes Jr., a Massachusets based school going boy, came across this penny in his lunch money.

Even though the US treasury declared Lutes’ find as a fake, he still decided to hold on to it.

The penny resurfaced after 70 years after his death and is set for auction. The expected sum it would fetch is between $1 million to $1.7 million.

Leah Silverman recounts what makes this penny so special here.
