    Post Office find!

    I went ship a package yesterday and in my change was a 1936 Indian Head in nice condition.
    It was the first to cross my palm. Made my day!
    The clerk had no idea what it was.

    You just have to love dealing with the young clerks anywhere ! Most of them have no clue as to what old money is / was. Great grab.

    Sorry I was away on business last week.

    Thanks all!

    No, the clerk was an older woman. From the accent, I would say she was from outside the US (not sure where). Nice lady, but she had no idea what it was.

    If she gave you correct change she must have known it's a nickel. Nice find!
