    No Mint Mark

    I was looking over some of my older coins and noticed that several of the wheat pennies don't have a mint mark. Does anyone know what that is all about?

    An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

    During WW II the silver nickels had a large "P" mint mark. First time coins made at the Philadelphia mint had a mark. A coin collecting bank teller in DC found a nickel with no mint mark, looked into it, contacted the Secret Service, and eventually they caught a man counterfeiting nickels! He figured they wouldn't catch him because nobody would do such a thing. His equipment was so good some of it went to the US Mint - and he, of course, went to prison.

    Good luck to all,
