Great recovery on that V nickel! Even more fun when itís a ďsurpriseĒ find like that! I agree with ynnek, Vís are truly an underappreciated coin. For me, itís one of those coins that screams out age when you see it, just like Indian Head cents - itís probably a combination of both the design and the patina, but if you show a IHP or a V nickel to someone, they almost always realize that itís an old coin even before they see the date

Anyways, youíre really doing things right - if youíre recovering those old nickels and breaking into the 1800s in your first season, then Indians, Mercs, Barbers, and Seateds wonít be far behind

Agreed. Not an easy coin to find, much less one from the 1800s.

Thanks all! I'm still pumped about this coin!

I went back yesterday and found another nickel... couldn't read it but it looked old... but this one was a 1972 Jefferson. LOL It was deeper than the 1897 V.

Way to go! (I hit 1900 on the nose today, my oldest coin by 44 years). Story later when I get pics.
