Wild that these still end up in cash registers!
Yeah, oldest coin that's exchanged hands with me at a store was a war-nickel.
More recently a 1957 Roosevelt dime.
Wow, nice! Imagine... it's been circulating for over 120 years! Unless it was released during National Coin Week. You know - I'm a repeat victim to an eye illusion when it comes to the Indian Head Cent. Every time I hold one in my hand, it always seems smaller than the Lincoln Cent. I think it's an eye illusion due to the size of the bust. Wonder if this happens to others. Anyway - Congrats to you for catching it.
Shoot.......I never saw a 'Barber' in the change when I was running the paper route back in the sixties, though I hear tell that they were prolific.
I used to get a lot of 'no date' Standing Liberty's back when I was runnin' the route.
Best I ever did in change was a 20 cent piece instead of a quarter. Back in the 50's.
That’s actually incredible .
There was an old man who pushed a vegetable cart down the alley's in our neighborhood. My mother gave me 50 cents and sent me out to get something that would cost 25 cents. The old man gave me the 20 cent piece in change. I looked at it and thought my mother was going to be shorted 5 cents. I took a chance. I took it in the house and told mom that he made a mistake. As I suspected, she told me to put it in my coin collection.
That was very kind of her. A nickel was a lot of money back then.
In this case it would be the whole 25 cents.
For her yes. But you made out good.
