    Duck--He's back and has more pennies!!!

    I went to my bank today to drop off yesterdays pennies and nickels and get $60 in nickels from the bank. I walk in there with one box of pennies in each hand (dang those things are suprisingly heavy!). All the tellers know me, and in this bank, they joke around, but they really hate dealing with all the coins. The first teller to spot me walking toward the desks, looks down, and acts like she's picking something up. Another teller looks over at me and tells me that she can help me. Then the one teller pops up and says "Oh, I saw something on the floor and had to pick it up..." Anyway, yeah, so I got $60 in nickels today (yesterday technically).

    Why do all nickels I find, like, before mid-60s never have a mint mark on them? I keep all nickels from 1959 and before, and none of them have a D, S, or a P. I just don't get it. My finds as follows:

    Misc.:

    1954
    1953
    1951

    The mint mark is on the reverse to the right of Monticello, next to the rim:

    Hey, thanks a ton for the info on the mint mark. I was really confused for awhile. About half of my nickels have a D on em. Unfortunately, not the 1939. Oh well.
