Still good finds to be found in circulation- 1920 cent!

Almost surely all three of these came from a local gas station. The 60-D and 59 are in just about perfect condition. The 1920 is low grade but it's still great to get a 97 year old coin in circulation.

Sorry the pictures are not better, still trying to figure out how to get good coin pictures on my new phone.

2017 P cent

I was quite surprised to get the first 2017 Cent and see that the P has now been added! The P mintmark was added to the other coins in 1980, but the cent went without all these years. Now, no longer.

I've been kind of "out of the loop" on the hobby so I didn't know this was coming until I got it in hand...and that was sometime back in April.

King Edward I Medal

This came from the same person who sent me the Green medal. Unfortunately this one has some issues, as are clearly visible in the photo. Yes, another photo post instead of scans.

Again I don't know where it came from or when it was issued. But I am pretty sure it's copper.

Nathaniel Green Medal

A friend gave this to me years ago. At the time, I didn't know the subject of the medal was a blood relative, but he is!

Actual pictures, not scans, today. I don't know when it was issued or even what country (France?) it was issued in, or what metal it's made out of.

Col. E.H.R. Green

I just today found out that Col. E.H.R. Green is my 16th Cousin 4 times removed. Very cool! It doesn't serve any practical purpose to know but it's a cool bit of trivia for a history buff like myself.
