My coin is a "buffalo" or "Indian head" nickel dated 1938. I got it when I worked in retail several years ago. We opened a roll of nickels and the entire roll was full of Indian heads. There were about 4 employees working at the time so we split them up between us. I think I just wanted them because everyone else did.
When you see a penny on the ground do you pick it up?
Sometimes I do and sometimes I don't. I read somewhere that when you see a penny it means the earth is trying to give something to us and we should pick it up and take it. Not to shun the gift. That's a nice thought.
and then there is the saying...
See a penny, pick it up, and all day long you'll have good luck.
