A rare U.S. coin has showed up in Tulsa.  

The 1856 Flying Eagle penny was only around for three years and only 2,000 were minted.  The coin was the first U.S. coin to not use a Lady Liberty in its design and after three years in circulation, the government changed over to an Indian head penny. 

A check shows the rare penny is worth around $25,000.
