Nope. I found a 1901 nickel. I was blown away. I'll post a pic of it tomorrow. Great find though!
It's been awhile since I've found an IHC.
The oldest I've found was a really crusty 1879.
Any day you find an IHC is a good day.
I think he is talking about a person record
Impressive! I would have scooped that straight up if that was in my register.
I exchange coins from those all the time.
Oops, lol. You mean it's not all about me?
Well keep your eyes opened as you are obviously already doing. I think that it happens more often that you think. Often times when grandma passes the change she set aside in her jewelry box tends to get rolled and deposited. I have a buddy at the bank that I offered once to purchase any odd coins that came her way. I never received any though. All I did was turn her into a coin collector!
Somebody’s collection is missing that puppy
About 35 years ago someone brought into my office for identification a very worn tetradrachm of the Indo-Greek king Hermaios c. 90–70 BC that he had received as change instead of a quarter from a coffee shop in Cincinnati. He had first taken it to our local Greek church where someone said it was old and very valuable; they suggested he ask my advice so he brought it to me. I dashed his hopes, which were to sell the coin and use the money to buy a new truck. He had imagine it to be worth $10,000. Yes, it was genuine, and yes, it was very, very worn. I told him that at best the coin might retail for $35 (remember, this was 35 years ago). He was crestfallen, but he did better than if he had been given a run-of-the-mill quarter.
