Perils of Pauline 1966 cent

Namvet69Namvet69 Posts: 8,671 ✭✭✭✭✭

Dug this railroad track cent, cleaned it up and checked it under my usb microscope just for grins and giggles. Lo and behold, I can see 1966 on the obv and AME on the rev. Ipso facto a Lincoln cent. Peace Roy

    I clean up every metal relic and artifact before I decide it goes to my recycle drum. Makes digging worth the effort. Peace Roy

    Many railroad coins were spun off into who knows where land.... When we did that as kids, usually about two out of five would not be found.... Now MD'rs find them ....Cheers, RickO
