    1800's coinage still on circ, it's always cool to see wild IHCs.

    Nice find. I have perused every coin that's gone through my hands in the last 20 years and I've never seen an Indian Head.

    Yeah, oldest coin that's exchanged hands with me at a store was a war-nickel.

    More recently a 1957 Roosevelt dime.

    We used to get some very old coins in circulation when I was a kid. But, you have to now be very old to be able to say that.

    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.

    Awesome. Oldest I ever found in circulation was a 1929 Lincoln. That coin is probably worth as much as $3 bucks in that condition. Decent return on investment.

    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. :)

    Best I ever did in change was a 20 cent piece instead of a quarter. Back in the 50's.

    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.
