CENT CIRCULATION IN THE SOUTH  

   In response to last week's query about cent circulation in the 
   South,  Tom DeLorey wrote:  "This does not sound right. I 
   have read that cents (not pennies) were scorned out West 
   during the Gold Rush days, but they should have been an 
   important part of day-to-day commerce everywhere by 
   1898. 
. 
   In "To Kill A Mockingbird," set in the deep South in, as I 
   recall, the late 1920s, there is a lovely little piece where Jem 
   Finch waxes ignorantly yet eloquently on Indian head pennies."
