He’s Been Saving His Pennies Since The 70s, I Can’t Believe What The Bank Told Him…

Since the early 1970’s Otha Ander, 73, has been saving pennies in five-gallon water jugs.

When he finally took them all to the bank to cash in, he was astounded by how much he had actually saved!

Watch the video here:

Ben Franklin famously said that “a penny saved is a penny earned.”

Otha obviously took this adage to his heart.

Meet Otha,

He was very particular about which pennies he added to his collection…

He never took pennies as gifts he only took what he found at random…

“If I would see a penny, it would be a reminder to stop right there and say a prayer,”

After a gruelling 5 hours at the bank counting his pennies, he finally

exchanged $5,136 worth of pennies for cash.  Nice work Otha!
