Now in his mid-70s, Anders had collected pennies for a total of 45 years. The very first penny he had saved, he had picked up after finding it lying on the ground. He took it home, put it aside and the rest is history!

Anders spoke to The News-Star back in 2015. He recalled: “I became convinced that spotting a lost or dropped penny was an additional God-given incentive reminding me to always be thankful.” What a lovely sentiment.
