Thatís quite high for a mintage number and there are likely many around. The thing is,not everyone hunts in that range especially in parks and schools because theyíre not silver and they are in the junk range. So to actually find one would be unique,just because of those factors.
I love finding stuff like that,itís just not an everyday thing.

1897 V nickel. A first for me my next investment will be either a better detector or better camera. Sorry for the clarity.

Thanks Tabby. I've just been lucky with the permission that I can take time to learn and try again.

Mines not anything special date wise, but it's extremely special to me.

It's pretty smooth but I can still see the details.

I found my first IHP 5' away so the new philosophy of low and slow has shown me what I've been missing.

Funny thing is, I was running high discrimination, on the BH, I actually went back over the plug and area quite a few times because it didn't make sense that I found a nickel running high tones.
