    I haven't seen it in 30 years, at least.

    Was there an episode of "I love Lucy" where Lucy gets rolls of pennies from the bank and looks through them for any rare ones worth money ?   She finds (I think) a 1914-S penny worth $10, but loses it before she can go sell it.

    Am I victim of "false memory syndrome", or is there such an episode ?   And if so, which episode.

    I'm working on a trivia contest involving coins and this information would help.   Thanks.

    That doesn't sound familar....maybe you're thinking of the "Bonus Bucks" episode in which Lucy gets a dollar that has a winning serial number from a newspaper contest and then has to chase it all the way to the laundry?

    Thanks,
    I read the summary of the "Bonus Bucks" episode and that definitely is not the one I remember.

    Maybe you're thinking of an episode of "Here's Lucy" or "The Lucy Show"? In one of those versions of her show she worked in a bank so it would be the right setting.

    Here it is..."The Lucy Show - Lucy the Coin Collector"

    http://www.tv.com/the-lucy-show/lucy-the-coin-collector/episode/45689/summary.html?tag=ep_list;title;70


    When Jerry finds a penny worth fifty cents, Lucy & Viv withdraw
    2,000 pennies from the bank, and search through them until they find
    one worth $16.50. When Lucy drops the penny down a storm drain, they
    disguise themselves as workmen, and climb their way through the sewer
    system searching for it.

    It's a shame that The Lucy Show is not is syndication nationally (or locally, at least here) so we can watch these gems as well.
