I would start with a dog.
Or, we could go absurd, and say Eagle Talon.

It may be better if this goes in the "What Is It" forum.
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.

Yup, I agree "What Is It" Forum... by the way I think it is too big for a dog.
As always...Love Silver...but going for the Gold!

i hope it is from a dino though.

It may be the illusive 1876-S Griffin Talon DDO

What are you doing with my mother in laws toe nail?
Jul 07, 2012, 07:36 PM
Ok then, I'll be the first to say it.
Jul 07, 2012, 08:19 PM
odd for sure... i am just wondering why you took it home!!

Puts a real meaning to the phrase "Get my claws on some silver"

I'm pretty sure that's a bird talon. My guess is either a red-tailed hawk or a peregrine falcon; both are native to Wisconsin.

Probably Black Bear.
I've taken a good many of them.
Keep on Rollin' !

You work at the credit union you dump at? Man, how sweet is that! Talk about having a sweet hook up to dump coin at! Thats definetly got to be nice. I'm surprized I'm the only one that said something about it. HH, Maverick.

Not a black bear it's to thin to be that I'm wanting to say a badger or a porcupine but the fact it goes light to dark from the root makes me think it's from the K-9 family and the fact u can see the quick so much makes me think of a dog

Thanks for all the suggestions everybody. Quite a range of possibilities. BuffaloBoy, I brought it home because everybody at the CU wanted to know what kind of claw / talon it was. I figured I could find somebody on the net that would know. maverick, it is a nice dump situation. I was friends with the head teller when I got serious into coin hunting. She told me to bring the coins in. After a while the branch manager said I was there so much he might as well put me to work so I took a part-time position there. I like the job and occasionally find some silver or wheat cents.
