I do love some of the US coins, especially the Peace dollars, although my collection is somewhat on the thin side. I often get low value modern US coins (I think I have a complete set of Lincoln Memorial 1 cents) from noodling bulk foreign coins but rarely get any earlier material hence my pleasant surprise when I pulled out this 1868 Shield nickel. It's heavily worn and the date is only just legible. I'm sure y'all find these coins in better condition among your lunch change but for a noodler in Oz I thought it was a pretty cool find, so thought I'd post it.

Always cool to hold a little piece of history. I've kind of just started and some of my old US coins are about this worn. If we like it and it gets us excited, that's the whole point of collecting. Cool find.

Great find in a bulk lot! That kind of find in the wild would certainly be exciting!
