After saving pennies for 65 years, an 81-year-old man finally cashes them in, but how much did he get?

Your parents have always told you to save your money. Well, Ira Keys took that bit of advice and ran with it. He started saving pennies when he was 17-years-old and didn't take out one untill recently.


The question on everyone's mind is how much was in the buckets of over 500 pounds of pennies. Drum roll please..... $816.00 . 

Prosperity Bank said it took them over an hour to count over 81,000 pennies! WOW!

Mr. Keys says he is going to take his father's advice and still save pennies.
