Almost threw this coin away
Quote this message in a reply
I was going through some of the "junk" stuff that I found at the pre-Civil War house, and almost threw this away. I decided to give it a quick toothbrush cleaning underwater and found that it was a coin. I was going to throw it away because it was so light it could not be a coin, I thought!

It's an aluminum 1943 2 francs WWII coin. Not worth a lot but glad I checked first!!

Congrats on the French War coin OTH. I've found a German one a while back but it was from the 50's. I thought it was a token at first. Crazy how they had to use aluminum back during those War days. Maybe it was brought back from Europe by a soldier who fought there. Interesting find!
