Otha Anders has been collecting pennies since the late 60s, early 70s. He has filled over 15 water jugs with them and is now ready to cash out finally.
As the man whose voice sounds so convincingly like Morgan Freeman explains, each time he found a penny on the ground he would offer a prayer of thanks. His kids knew of what he was doing, so they tried to help him by bringing him any penny they found but he would refuse to take them because he wanted the satisfaction of having saved all the pennies alone by himself. He even refused to yield in to the temptation of making some extra money back during the time when the government was actually paying $25 extra to anyone who turned in $100 worth of pennies.
And I thought having saved some nickels for 2 years was such a big deal. Hah!
