I haven't seen one of those in ages.
Use to collect coins as a teenager and had a pretty good collection. Don't remember what was so important in my life that I used the collection to buy something but I did.

No matter where you go, there you are

That is worth a ton of money because the buffalo is facing in the wrong direction! The mint screwed up on that one and only a few were produced. Andy Griffith Show fans will appreciate this :D

Back in the day, I always heard a very frugul person could squeeze one until it brought a tear to that old bison's eye.

I can’t even begin to see a date. It smooth as can be. I wish I knew the date.

Most of the old Indian nickles lost their dates. They wore off pretty easily. There was still a few circulating when I was young, but I haven't seen one in years in change. Sometimes you can find an old War nickel which are 35% silver from 1942-45.

I’m not a coin collector but I’ve started watching my change. Been trying to get a war nickel for a few years. Closest I’ve come is a 1941 I believe.

Yea, they are not common to find anymore. I have started saving my pre-1981 pennies when I can since they are pretty much pure copper. It is just a little hobby I do.

If any of you guys know of any CoinStar machines at stores in your area, make it a habit to check them. They have a kickout chute that people seldom check. They will kick out the silver dimes and quarters, as well as foreign coins. You'd be amazed at what is in them unless you have somebody already staying on top of them and checking them. Silver coins are my favorite, besides gold coins. I've never found a gold one in circulation though but plenty of silver ones.

It's common name is American buffalo but it's actually a bison.

The hospital I worked at when I lived in Knoxville had a cafeteria that I frequented. One day, I had a meal that totaled $4.95. I gave a $5 bill and got a nickel in change. It was a 1905 bison.. I used a surgical microscope to verify the date and mint stamp. Turns out in the condition it was in, it was worth approximately $350. I took it to a collector and he gave me $270 for it. Not a bad deal, in my opinion, since I didn't have to deal with trying to sell it elsewhere. Always look at your change....
