    Interesting.
    The posts have the Civil War and WWII covered.

    We need some from:
    -- the War of 1812
    -- the Spanish American War (1898)
    -- WWI (1914-1919); only 1918/1919 for the US
    -- the Mexican/American War (date?)

    And then there were the more recent ones:
    -- the Korean War
    -- Vietnam
    -- Afghanistan

    Those are the ones I can think of off the top of my head.

    Yes. I was shaking like a leaf when I dug it up ! I still can't believe it . Even though it's not in the greatest shape, I believe it's still desirable .

    And I can’t leave this one out. Notice the 3 in the date. It has the notch si this is a 3/2 and it has full steps.

    I saw this set at a coin show many years ago and bought it because I thought it was neat.

    And here is something that is a bit different. This a "web" that was left over after the planchets for wartime steel cents were punched out of the strip of metal.
