I posted a while back a very worn 1868 Shield nickel that I found in a bunch of mixed world coins. I find very few older coins in the bulk mixes and even less from the Land of Liberty so I always get excited when I find an older US coin. The other day I pulled an 1867 Shield nickel in rather good nick for it's age so thought I would post it. I guess you guys and gals in the states find these in your boxes of Cheerios but for us Aussies, it's a rare beast.

@dave, that is a fun find. The date looks to be 1867 though, unless you've accidentally uploaded the wrong pics.

Hi Spence, the one I noodled nearly a year ago was 1868. This one (pictured) I noodled a few days ago. It's 1867 (earlier date) and in better condition than the 1868.

Not sure but it may be a DDO. Not a major one though.
