Reconsidering the Silver War Nickel. . . . .

January 01, 2019 12:34AM
I like the way you think Rich. The math is infallible. Im ready to be a convert. Funny irony....i was thinking of doing that exact math yesterday, simply out of curiosity. I believe your true test will be converting the Godfather:-)



For DECADES, I've cleaned up the silver nickels and slipped them in a coin tube with all the rest of the silver nickels and put them away without much more thought. I think there was something posted here on AHRP's earlier in the year and I believe I made a comment along the lines that I've never really thought of the silver nickel as a full blown silver coin. .whatever that means . That got me to pondering my reasoning for my 'position'.

Truthfully, I think I get a little prejudiced about my finds and have them categorized in my own mind of what types of coins or items I prefer finding over others. Oftentimes a comment by another detectorists or something historical learned of an item can 'boost' the perceived importance in my own mind, or perhaps bump it further down as well. Funny how we think sometimes.

Just some of my own thoughts here. Looking forward to reading from others.
