REEDSVILLE, Pa. (AP) - After four decades of pinching pennies, a Mifflin County man decided that it was time to cash in his collection - over a million coins.
It took several months of bank visits to bring in 37 buckets of pennies to be cashed but, by the end, Lynn Wagner ended up with $10,060.
"I thought that it'd be interesting to have a million of these so I thought that I'd try," he said last week.
Wagner, 53, collected 1 million pennies in August.
Along with saving his own pennies, he also received contributions as word of his collection spread.
"Some people think that pennies don't add up to anything, but this is proof that they do," Brenda Wagner said.
