    hey I was Tired, saw the V and it never registered. just got a shot in my eye and it was really bothering me. The muscle relaxers didn't help either. That was the nicest Buff even with out the date, usually they look really rough here. There is an art to seeing and not seeing the obvious LOL. Been fighting a very bad lower back for about three weeks, you know how it is, you feel a little bit better and you go anyways only to pay for it. and I was more interested in the multiple stamped penny, hadn't seen one like that before. yeah, it was a major DUH for me.

    I feel like an idiot. Actually I don't do the pictures or attach them to the posts, my wife does that part. I struggle with how to do it, mainly remembering what you have to do so she does them all for me. I had the coins separate and she did her thing. I totally failed to do mine. At the time I really didn't care, just wanted it done. my eye felt like it had broken glass in it from the shot that I had the day before and so I wasn't really looking at much. and no, it is a lot bigger than a dime. guess you had to have been there. Today I can see better but still feel like an idiot. I feel like the guy that shoots a basket at the wrong end and makes it for the other team. Duh

    Charles Barber designed the Liberty head/'V' nickel. Wouldn't that technically make it a Barber?

    Nice Hunt
    How did you clean up that nickel? I found one a couple nights ago and it has a thin layer of
    rust covering 80% of the coin. I have been soaking in olive oil for 2 days.

    Thanks
