You could buy a stamped postcard and send it anywhere for 1 penny. Or a large piece of "penny" candy.
Add 4 more cents for a coffee or a newspaper. My father was born in 1900, always drove a decent
car but never paid more than $25 - $40 for one up until the mid 50's when he bought his first new
car a 56 Ford 2dr h/t for 1,800 cash.
