View attachment 2029674 View attachment 2029674 I can’t stop smiling. My oldest silver coin I think. Rough shape and dirty but looks good with a led flashlight shining across it.

Does it have "one half dollar" lettered on its edge? Some of those old ones have edge lettering. Beautiful coin in amazing shape!
Thanks for the heads up. It does have edge lettering. I will try to clean it up a bit to read it.
