Pennies from heaven

LONGMONT , Colorado - A business owner in Longmont says ten eagle-eyed people are in for a deal from his store.

Mark Chamberlain marked ten years in business with C-and-C Coins and Collectibles last month. He said that to celebrate, he spent ten rare 1914-D Lincoln pennies in downtown stores.

People who end up with the pennies can sell them back to Chamberlain.

Chamberlain says the coins are valued at up to 150 dollars.

So far three of the pennies have been sold back to Chamberlain. He has paid between one-hundred and 130 dollars for each.
