Hi Everyone,

So what I have been doing for a long while is this, I keep a record (now in my iPhone but used to be in a notebook) of all the coins or even paper money that I find out in the world. I don't mean CRH or getting change from transactions or if you are a cashier or bank teller. Something you didn't exchange your money for.

What I mean is finding coins on the ground anywhere, coins left in the discard area of coin star, sitting on a table in your break room. Totally free money even if only a penny.

I do it by month and then see how much I have in a year. Also any interesting coins, errors, silvers.

For me January I have found $0.64 so far. Best coin a 1954 D Roosevelt dime sitting on top of coin star, not even in discard!! One 1958 D Wheat cent in parking lot in front of 7 Eleven.

Anyways I find this a fun way of looking for coins and hey if it's free it's for me. Hope you all contribute!

I used to clean a famous store and I would find coins on the floor every day, I would keep track of the amount but not every individual coin. The "best" coin I found was a very nice 1944 P Jefferson nickle. I was very surprised to find such a coin in 2019.

During a break at work (sitting on the curb) 1960D LMC small date found in the planter, not that bad of shape (no road rash just a little crusty dirt) and it filled a hole in my first album

My latest "Worldly" find; it was just laying in a parking lot!
I thought it was a coupon at first.

Guess the serial number, and it's yours!


Anybody know what the red ink markings indicate?
