Title

Slavery Artifacts: Penny

Description

Mr. Taylor brought in this penny to the History Harvest to share with us, accompanied by a note from his grandaunt. This penny is a 'braided hair coronet'-style penny, dated 1840, and Mr. Taylor informed us that his great-great-grandmother held on to this penny until she passed away. He said it was a highly treasured object for his great-great-grandmother, as slaves were not allowed to have money of their own.
