I hate it when a plan falls apart.

Steve is correct in comments.

I misread the US mint webpage about the new nickel. I thought that the side-by-side images of the new nickel were the front and back. I thought it said that Jefferson's face would be gone until 2006. That's not what it said.

So all my hopeful, conspiracy theory stuff about phasing (facing) out Thom and Abe's faces is not true.

I stand by my statements about losing the two 1s though.

Yes, phase out the penny, I have to many of them in my change collection.

But what would this do to how companies price things, such as $1.99 which is to give the consumer the impression that they are not spending $2.00, so would we start seeing price like $1.95 if stores could not give the correct change ?
