Today, after weeks of searching, I finally found a priceless coin I had previously lost. Turns out it was just a really rusted over penny. FML.

When I was a kid I was constantly digging our front yard to find a treasure. All I got was a rusty piece of metal. I was very happy though.

Maybe you thought you were a dog that day and reburied it? 8 year olds and their imagination. Lol

That must just suck. I've always hated when things like that happen. how did you know it was worth hundreds of dollars if you lost it?

I'm sorry for my lame joke. I watched No Country For Old Men last night and it's still thick in my veins. I'll try harder next time.

Ha ha! I just watched No Country For Old Men too. I got that right away. Good comment no matter what people rate it, they are just not cultured enough to get it.

No it is not. I have a 1992 US penny worth 1000. I got it back as change. It is a fun hobby. Better than being on FML all day.

24, I'm intrigued, how was a 92 penny worth so much, when it isn't that old even. I've got a pile of 50's pennies thats only worth like two bucks total

Some times there's an error in the minting, like stuff stamped twice or upside down. If there's only a few of those errors, the coins can be worth a lot, even if it's a new coin. Of course, sometimes they do this on purpose to encourage collecting.

I don't collect coins, but I do happen to have a few foreign ones. It's kinda cool, they come in different shapes and everything.

Yeah I have been collecting for only a 2 weeks and have collected 3 war nickels and 2 1913 mercury dimes. That's worth about 300 bucks in all. All I have been doing is paying in cash for smaller purchases and looking through my change, so I think it is totally worth it, definitely in this economy!

He did say he was eight at the time. Totally understandable. OP, just move on. There's nothing you can do about it now.
