I used to work at this convenience store where my boss would constantly check my register and accuse me of stealing because i was black. One day during one of his routine register checks he finds a penny that he claims to be a fake. This leads to a massive argument which results in me being fired. Just before i stormed out of his office he flicked the penny at me and said something about it being worthless anyway. My dad is a massive coin nerd and loves coins more than he loves me. I showed him this “fake” coin and he almost had a heart attack. It turns out this was a 1969 penny that due to some problem with it is incredibly rare. He told me it was worth 40 grand and I sold it the next day.
