Found close to where I dug an 1848 Nova Scotia half-penny token a few months back: a 1955 Caribbean Territories British 25-cent coin.

At first, I got excited when I read that you found a 1848 Nova Scotia Halfpenny in New Jersey. :laughing7:
But then I saw it was a '55 British West Indies coin... still, it's something you don't find everyday.
