Liberty Head Nickel Found

Coins | user_47175

Hello again guys. Today I got a new box of nickels, and I am still searching through it, but I just found a pretty cool coin. I opened up the roll, and it looked like nothing cool was in it from looking on the side, but then when I looked through it more carefully, I found a 1910 Nickel. I would say that it is in G-4 condition, so it's not amazing, but still a pretty awesome find. I will update you if I find anything more. Thanks for reading.

Nice find; congrats! Believe it or not, I actually found a 1942 Mercury dime in the reject bin of the Coinstar machine at a local Walmart yesterday. I won't tell you which one though, user_47175, only because I know you also live in my city!! :) But seriously, to everyone, always check the reject bin/slot of those Coinstar machines. They often reject 90% US silver coins because they don't match the weight for the post-1964 coins. 90% silver dimes weigh 2.5 grams; the clad/copper-nickel dimes weigh 2.27 grams. Since the 1942 dime I found was still in decent condition (about a VF-30) it still weighed over 2.27 grams, and got rejected by the machine because it didn't recognize it as being a "real" US dime. This is just one more way out there for all of us to find silver coins in circulation - good luck hunting, everybody (especially during a time of year when people are cleaning out their piggy banks; those Coinstar machines should be receiving a lot of obsolete coinage these days!!) -Sam Gelberd, ANA Numismatic Educator.

Anytime you find any coin from 1910, you have done very well. Keep up the hunting, and keep us posted.

What a find! I would have liked to see a pic of a coin in circulation 118 yrs.

Great find. It's not the grade but the coin itself that makes you feel good. You can find coins any were check your change. Mike

Great find, I am so unlucky when CRH nickels, have not found anything useful yet. Great to hear it though.
