some old coins
Not an avid collector, bit I found these in over the years. The 1919 penny kinda blows my mind to sit and think about how many hands and what that coin might of seen. All of these except the dollar were found in my pocket at one time or another over the years. Easy hunting, I guess. The pile on the right are all pre-1969. Anything special I should check for?

There is nothing special about pre-1969 coins. However, Kennedy halves made between 1965 and 1970 are 40% silver. Pre-1965 dimes, quarters and halves contain 90% silver. I found a 1919 penny this weekend as a matter of fact. I have found more 1919's than any other teens penny. Tell us more about the coins.

You should check some of the pre-1969 for errors and wheat cents. What is that thing above the quarters?
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.

That is a good find. Anything old has its own history on them. I think you should keep it.
