   I like fractional denomination coins. Most of people nowadays do not know long time ago even half of a cent can buy thing, what more quarter cent. What did they buy at a price of half cent in 1916?

   Even the 1 cent coin is demonetised nowadays.Can you think of an item, the cheapest item in the world that you can buy with a face-value of the coin above?
