Going through pocket change can yield many wonders. Just recently, I traveled to West Virginia and found a 1930 Wheat Penny in my change. When you travel to places without many travelers in or out, sometimes coins will just circulate within a small area (Like that penny!)More following.MercuryDIme
Nice coin .
Cool. I found a silver dime in my grandparents change once.
There are still nice old collectable coins out there in circulation! From time to time I like to "plant" an old Lincoln or Buffalo into the mix of change I give a cashier.
You always need to check your change... You never know what you might find! ; )
Love just going through my coins, that's how I found the 1972 Ike Dollar that I think is a D/D reverse (sending it off), I live in the south where you can find almost any coin made in the US Mints from all over the world so I have a variety of silver coins with writing and numbers I'm still studying. Thanks for the blog and happy venturing.
Also when you are in a low populated area, the nearest coin show or coin deal can quite a distances away. The cost of getting a numismatic coin to a place to receive the numismatic value is prohibitive. So old coins and proof coins just get spent.

Going through pocket change can wield many rewards. I always check my change. I also pick up random lose change as well. You just never know what you might find.
I still hit the Coin Star machines.
My wife went shopping when she came back she gave me the change. I noticed one of the cents was red. It was a 1931 S cent that graded MS 64!!
