It is a first for me. On the field, when I noticed the hole, I thought it might be something nice. Certainly didn't expect it to be a Trime.

I think the trime is the smallest silver coin ever minted by the United States. There was a $1.00 gold coin that was smaller. The trime measures 14mm and the gold coin was 13mm. Here is one I found yesterday beside a half dime found a long time ago. Here is a link to a site that shows U S minted coin sizes.
