I am working on completing my Lincoln book and I need quite a few to end the search. However, out of a couple of rolls from my bank I found a 1935 and a 1954D which I needed.

I found a 1855 or 1856 penny at my G-maws house...
The last number is missing " was printed that way" so I have no clue of the year but the 5 is leaning so that narrows it down to 55 or 56...
 
Also found a 1976 zinc penny!!! Non-Circulated to!!!

While play with my QX5 'toy' I found a Lincoln cent with what appeared to be an extra eye.

Just when you think that luck is something that other people have, it jumps up and smacks you in the forehead.  I just found a 1936-S Washington quarter while going through a bunch of rolls.  Condition is at least EF-40.

Hi,
Sorry I've been gone so long.
Hope all have been well.
When I was four years old I found an 1888-P Morgan Silver Dollar (VF/XF) laying in the grass.

Lately, I have picked up from circulation: a 1934 $5 bill, a brand new minty fresh 1977 $10 bill, 1875 Indian Head cent, and 1957;1958;1964 Lincoln cents in VF/XF.

1937-D Three Legged Buffalo Nickel...oh, wait that was just a dream  Wink

1947 Roosevelt Dime in VG, 1936 Lincoln One Cent in G, some 1958-59-60 Lincoln Penny in AG ( But I polished it when I still don't know how to collect coin, what a pity)
