Since I’ve basically been not finding anything no hot leads what I do have would cost me $50 of gas to get there without a guarantee so as you know I’ve been cleaning through my stuff because I put down some wood flooring so I had to move everything and I’m putting it back in the water and in a small pile of my lead bale seals read them over just one more time I noticed that this was a lead thick shield nickel crazy haven’t seen anything like it I’m telling you I have found so many cool things in my room I love it
Would they counterfeit a shield nickel? Is it lead or is it Antimony I’m a brittle metal they used to use in the 1800s I have a seeded dime made out of it if you wanna see it let me know

Looks like a thick shield nickel. Or maybe two stuck together.

Get something on it before it gets more decayed, it's a really cool re-find.
Nothing like discovering something all over again, while whittling some time away.
