Default $0.01 / hour

So 5 hours later I got paid with a nice 1920 S Buffalo nickel.

We are all more than willing to go out in the cold, heat, humidity, rain, mud, and whatever else swinging a coil for what usually amounts to less than a dollar an hour but if our bosses at work asked us to work for that amount we'd tell him where he could go At least you got a buffalo nickel for your 1 cent per hour......some of us only get 5 zincolns

Nice buffalo for sure. Not often you find one with a date. Good going.

Pardon the silly way of framing this find. In truth it was a nice hike outdoors with great weather and another coin for my collection. I'm very happy and consider it 5 hours well spent.
