    playgrounds have cool things

    I went to a playground where I grew up and lets just say, it was an interesting day.
    The playground is now where a school used to be. I thought it would be a good place to look.

    When I washed off my coins this is what I found.

    6 pennies
    1 nickel
    2 dimes
    1 quarter
    1 dollar coin from Australia
    1 half cent from Sierra Leone
    1 penny from Bahamas
    1 pendant from boiler makers iron ship builders
    1 chuckie cheese token
    1 1912 5 cent coin.
    20 + pop tabs and much more garbage.

    I am not sure about any of these coins. This was my 4Th time mding.

    I am figuring the coins that are not US are from when McDonald's gave them away a while back.

    I will be going back in a few days to look again. [/img]

    Re: playgrounds have cool things

    Hello, & Welcome to TNet...
    Great group of coins there. Is the washington quarter a 1941? If so, it's silver and a very nice find. If your not aware of it, any "Quarters, Half's, Dollars, or Dimes" produced from 1964 and before are made from silver... Also, do you see any mint mark on the Liberty Head Nickel? The mint mark will be on the reverse below the button to the left of CENTS. According to PCGS's price guide an "S" mint mark for that year is worth $140 in Good condition... You can check for yourself at this site:

    Re: playgrounds have cool things

    welcome nice finds there --esp for only your 4th time out -- seems you found a good spot --- silver quarter ---buff nickle ---barber or "v" nickle as some folks call it --- maybe silver dimes? ---nice haul --I 've been doing this quite awhile and would be very happy with a day like that---sorry if you had a bad "experance" before really as a group --most folks here are quite nice and helpful ---but theres always the 10% jerk factor (10% of the people in the world are jerks) in all things in life sadly --- just push them aside mentally ---and march on ---- Ivan
