I must say, that is a bit stupid for a judge to make such a quote. Pennies are still legal currency, and no one should be scrutinized by their method of payment - no matter how ridiculous it may seem. --Mrmiscellanious 20:40, 3 August 2005 (UTC)[reply]

  • In the US, legal tender (pennies) cannot be refused. I had a friend who mailed final payment of a persistent and final bill, that wouldn't go away, with 43 pennies taped to the bill payment stub itself. It was the last, and thankfully for my angered friend, the last he ever heard from that bill collector. -Edbrown05 00:50, 4 August 2005 (UTC)[reply]
When I was living on a US military base overseas, pennies weren't circulated. If you had some, you could spend them, of course, but everything was just rounded off. No one minded. I hear that it's the same in US territories. --CGW 12:07, 5 August 2005 (UTC)[reply]
We paid a NH toll with 75 pennies last month. --TUFKAAP 11:29, 20 August 2005 (UTC)[reply]
