Some people say finding any money on the ground is lucky. Well it may be but to find a penny, on heads, traditionally means you’ll have good luck for the rest of the day. Of course, you need to make sure you don’t spend it for it turns out to be the same as finding a penny on tails, which, of course, is bad luck. Now it does give pause to wonder if you find a 1942 copper penny on either heads or tails would that not be considered good luck? Since pennies during World War 2 were made of steel since they needed the copper to make bullets, a copper penny during the war years is worth a considerable chunk of change!
