This is one of my favorites because I found it in a very small park in Illinois in the town where my Grandmother grew up. She was born in 1894. She used to tell me about the carnivals and fish frys they would have at this park when she was a child. It's a very small town of of only maybe 100 residents today. It's possible she might have lost this coin when she was 10 or 11!

I found it way back in 1976. I think it was only a couple of inches deep. When I pulled it out of the ground it still had the gem bu "frosted" look on the reverse. The ground at this park is really nice dark black dirt.
