Otha Anders had been picking pennies up off the street for 45 long years. One day, he decided it was time to cash in on his findings. Wheeling a dolly into the bank, full of pennies in water jugs, everyone stared at him.

They had no idea the small fortune he was about to walk out of the bank with.
