    Found my oldest coin ever CRHing

    Came in one of my boxes on Friday, she was actually an ender. 1918D, only 3 years away from a barber! I've never even found a wheat cent this old before. Thought I would share her. The edge is worn completely smooth, you can't even tell it once had reeded edges. Has the same smoothness a nickel has.

    Wow thats a beauty find CRHstreetwalker. Your find actually reminded me to post my own 1918 I found a few weeks ago and never got the chance to post. In my box I was lucky enough to get two walking liberties. I have to say these are my favorite coins and I dead near passed out when I saw that as an ender.

    Never thought Id find one when I started CRH a few months ago let alone 2 in one box. Again congrats on your walker!

    congrats this is a nice coin! I like the fact that its 1918, most i've seen posted on here are later dates that makes this one special I hope you don't intend on selling it..$10 bucks or even $20 isn't worth anything than seeing such a beautiful coin in your possession...good luck and I hope you find more WLs!
    Goal for 2012:

    HALF DOLLAR
    40% = 400
    90% = 100

    Walker = 10
    Ben = 10

    DIME
    Merc = 10
    90% = 50

    NICKEL
    Buff = 10
    War = 10

    Is your 1918 a D mintmark? I think D were the fewest produced for the year.

    Unfortunately for the 1918 one the edges are too worn down to see where it was minted unless it was a P mint. The other 1933 has an S mint mark which I found cool because I live in New York and almost never see S mint coins.

    Spary it with orange paint so you don't loose it. Some of that grow in the dark paint.

    Send me loads of that paint. I'll take all my silver halves and turn them in to Morgans when I put them in the dark.
    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.
