I have a souvenir from Pikes Peak that I found in a dresser that belonged to my grandmother. The item is a large penny, with a diameter of about 3 inches give or take. The front has an Indian head with the words “Lucky Penny” around the outside. The backside has a picture of a railroad track and a train. Around the outside it says “Summit of Pikes Peak” and “Altitude 14,109 ft”. I did a little research, and because of the altitude number, this was made between 1909 and 1951. The altitude amount was different in the years prior to this, and after. However, this is the only thing I have found about it. I have not found one sentence about this penny on any website and I hoped I could find some help here. Does anyone have any information?
