Nice. I cant tell you how many unique things I've found before I found a war nickle. For exmple.. Fur trade axes, 1807 KGIII, Ford Model T parts, Gold and Silver rings, Walking Liberty Half, multiple silver coins and so on and so on. So congrats it's not as easy at it seems :icon_thumright:

Not around these parts. Most of the war nickels Iโ€™ve dug have had green crud. The most recent Looks like it caught something from a zinc penny...

Congrats on your first war nickel! Haven't seen one in about four years, but I always know what they are when I see them surface!
