Hey All,

So I have been nickel hunting the last bit and I have noticed that almost all the post 1965 nickels I have found have at least one almost coin length heavy scratch running over the bust of the monarch.

Does anyone know why this is? Is it just a coincidence or is this something others see as well? Super curious...

Thanks!

Used in pay telephones and street meters.

Is that what would cause those scratches? No I am old enough to remember those but I guess using nickels for pay phones and meters was before my time haha :P By then a nickel got you enough to punch in a phone number only (sarcasm of course lol). So maybe the older nickels are from when a nickel would actually get you some time from a meter and a phone and therefore were used more. Makes sense! Poor nickels :'(
