    Below are small sections of 25 U.S. Coins out of my collection -- all are legal tender, though some might be commemoratives.

    How many can you get right?


    If a design is shared amongst various denominations, you can identify it by the major design type only.

    Ah dang, you're right. 20 is a shield nickel, not a 2c piece. They both looked similar at a quick glance and the color threw me off...:confused:
