A penny saved is a penny earned, and many of us believe in this, making it a principle of our life. Probably this proverb was the driving force which was instrumental in Mr. Otha Anders’ hobby of penny collection. He has been collecting pennies for past four decades and the amount which was stored in 15 water bottles shows that he had taken the ‘penny saved, penny earned’ proverb too seriously, and did not want to let go of his collection. It is not only about the monetary value that he kept the coins with himself but he has an affinity towards these coins. Now that his insurance company did not cover them, he had no other option but forgo them. When the coin machines counted the coins they amounted to around $5,000, and people, including him, were surely taken aback.
