Congrats! First of ANYTHING is always a thrill! Are you sure it isn't a "D" under the date? Philadelphia mint usually doesn't have a mark, unless it's a war nickle or special issue.

yep your right its a D, once i wiped it down with dish soap & water it came across clear as being a D, this is the best hobby in the world, it gives us avid motorcycle riders of ks a good windy weather hobby which it everyday lol
