    I had my Walking Liberty collection out and, thinking about recent conversations about finding coins in circulation, I thought I would show my best WLH circulation find. Sometime in the late 40's or early 50's this 1942 P showed up.

    I love it and can't wait to have my own memories like this.

    Get those memories and share them - with us and any children you may have. Sometimes I think my family gets bored with my excess information about my collection and how I acquired some things. When they inherit these I hope they remember and don't put them in the slot machines.

    That's a sweet looking coin. Looks like it was just minted yesterday.

    I always treated them like babies. I still do.

    I wonder how many of us wished that time machines were real.

    Beautiful coin. It’s hard to come across a WLH anywhere without any signs of wear nowadays.

    I had a similar find in the early 50's when I got a Twenty Cent piece in change. The vendor owed me 25 cents change and gave me a Twenty Cent. My Mother let me keep it. They have gone up in value considerably since then.

    This one is definitely circulated just giving how I acquired it. There were a lot of very nice coins in circulation back then.

    If you still have it, would love to see it. (I had to Google it just now to see what it looks like.)
