Posting in this subforum since four out the five coins spotlighted in this article are Lincoln cents (you'll have to pardon the author's technically incorrect reference to them as "pennies")

No one cares. Even the Mint calls the pennies.

am I missing something? The picture accompanying the title 1943 D shows a 1943 with no mint mark?

Fun read. Calling them pennies, as the U.S. Mint does, shouldn't be an issue.

But I do want those Bison nickels renamed

Article is incorrect there are a few large cents that have cracked the $1 million level.

I agree about the "penny" issue. Sure, it's technically incorrect but everyone uses "pennies" and "cents" interchangeably and have so for a long, long time. Penny = Cent in my book.

Conde101 certainly has a point. In fact, quite a few large cents have fetched in excess of the $373K that the 1944-S Steel Cent (#2 on the article's list) sold for.

See: https://www.PCGS.com/auctionprices/...1793-1796/38

And also: https://www.PCGS.com/auctionprices/...796-1807/660

However, the article does play into the hopes and dreams of all those who check their change or hunt through rolls....

Ever notice those Nickels are usually called Buffalo nickels and yet that is a Bison on the thing.
And isn't a Quarter a 2 bit thing? And a $5 bill is a Fin and why is it called a bill anyway?
All is just our money system.
