Hi all,

New to the website and thought I would ask what are your oldest coins ever found?
50 - 1938
25 - 1964
10 - 1919
5 - 1920s
1 - 1889

On a side note, I stopped by one of my pick up banks a couple days ago. The teller told me he had a guy bring in some old pennies.
He had 5$ worth. Bought them and found that all the rolls were solid steelies with one exception, a well worn 1911.

Happy Hunting!

If you found it in an alley, it's probably a copy. Lots of those around.

Had it graded and authenticated back in the late 90s and sold it for something like $1200 if I recall correctly. I had initially taken it to a couple of coin shops and they claimed copy as well and offered me $20-30 bucks...that seemed off to me which is why I went out on a limb to have it checked out. I'm not big into collecting or numismatics so parting with it wasn't difficult.
