Corrected entry: In the very first paragraph, it says "one dollar and eighty-seven cents. That was all. And sixty cents of it was in pennies... Three times Della counted it. One dollar and eighty-seven cents. And the next day would be Christmas." After subtracting the 60 cents in pennies from the $1.87 you are left with $1.27. There has to be 2 (two) more pennies to make 27 cents. (62 pennies in all, not 60).
