A notched cent was recently submitted to a treasure magazine, as a piece used to identify slaves on the underground railroad. Further research
revealed the attached information, from Greenback: The Almighty Dollar and the Invention of America by Jason Goodwin. I do not believe the
comments on the notched cents. I was wondering if there was any truth to the comment on the 1799 cents, which also seems doubtful.
I'm not sure where the author got that stuff. Readers? -Editor
