    Post-'68 canadian dimes are pretty ugly.. get your hopes up that you found silver...

    Susan B. Anthony by far is the worst coin in US history.

    1964 nickels for 3 reasons. There's tons of them; the metal is weird so they appear to be war nickels most of the time from the edge; they make me think "if only this were a box of half dollars" gerrrr!

    others include: susan b obviously, 1965 quarters, 1965 dimes, 1971 halves.

    1/100 of an American dollar is a cent. It is NOT a penny. The word penny is used by several other countries, such as Great Britain, to denote their smallest denomination. In order to be numismatically correct, you must use the term cent to describe the American coin.

    I second the 1964 nickels, I have been excited a few time only to be let down once they were date-checked.

    I know I'll be in the minority here, but to me, the obverse of the Barber coins are terribly ugly. I certainly do like seeing them pop out of the ground though. I would imagine that its equally exciting to see one appear in a roll, although that hasn't happened to me yet.
