Peggy Ross - Reporter

Her little story was the beginning.

Peggy Ross is the local reporter to whom Ken Mason told the news about his sale of a penny to a California investor for $25,000. It was Ross’ small 2”x 4” article in the Bethel Ohio Journal on January 12, 1972 that launched a tidal wave of coverage about the Penny.

Ms. Ross’ contribution to the Legacy of the Lincoln Mystery Cent is actually the first brick in the foundation for all the amazing media events that followed.
