This Thursday, April 19, 2012, shows the reverse side of a rare 1792 experimental penny on display in Schaumburg, Ill., where it was auctioned off for $1 million on Thursday. Officials with Heritage Auctions say Kevin Lipton of Beverly Hills, Calif., bought the penny on behalf of a group of unnamed investors for $1 million and must also pay the auction house's 15 percent commission. It was never actually put into circulation and only 14 examples of the coin are known to exist. (AP Photo/Daily Herald, George LeClaire) MANDATORY CREDIT; MAGS OUT; TV OUT less
