    Well preserved V Nickel

    Have not posted in a while but wanted to share this one. Nothing unique but this V Nickel I "fished" in a river was so well preserved that I thought I would share. Pics are at the river. It came out really nice after clean-up. Full liberty visible. Was in the water under 3" of gravel and sand and did not corrode much at all.

    Really nice for a 'V'! I found a 1900 in the same shape last fall. It was found lying on top of the ground at an old ghost town in Calif. near the Nevada border. The only difference is the patina...the one I found is a pale green.

    Remember its not the treasures we find or the length of the journey. But the fact that when we are done we can look back at our life and smile with a satisfied feeling that we enjoyed the trip. So always "Keep Swinging And Keep Smiling"

    All nickels do well in the water, but poorly in the dirt.

    Congrats on a sweet V nickel!

    Why do older nickels come out looking like pennies in terms of color? I'm surprised that electrolysis won't even remove that corrosion.
