    I've found dozens over the years, ranging from 1919 to 2004, and cents thru Ike dollars. After awhile I started filling an album with holed nickels by date. Halves easily dominated in numbers, but I eventually cashed those in and kept around 30 or so examples. Some were crude, others neatly done. One nickel hole is so precise I'd swear it's struck on a foreign coin planchet. Four holes in one coin is the record, but I've seen two and three also.

    Love holey coins!
    LOL. I agree. I hesitated to post the pics because they are so common. It is surprising how something becomes more worthy of posting the longer a person is stuck inside during interminable rain. My neighbors are completing an ark and starting to round up some pairs of animals...
