CENT CIRCULATION IN THE SOUTH  

   A visitor to my personal web site asked "Do have any idea why 
   pennies were not accepted in the South in the 1890s?  I am 
   researching a book based on my grandfather's memoirs and he 
   states that when he was in New Orleans in 1898 he was branded 
   as a Northerner when he tried to spend pennies."  

   Does this ring true to any of you?  I don't recall hearing this story 
   before.   I referred them to one of my favorite books, "Fractional 
   Money" by Neil Carothers, 1930.
