Do you guys count war nickels in your silver coin count for the year? I found two today and was wondering.

They have silver in them, so, as you already know, I certainly do. Yes, lower silver content, but hey, silver's still silver Yes

You're home already? I thought you would've staked a tent and camped out at the spot Chuckle

Nice going Gerry. Two in one hunt is quite a feat. And I would surely count them with the silver.

You’re a little off base. I never said this: "Yeah they count for this site per Joe."

What I said was this: "They have silver in them, so, as you already know, I certainly do. Yes, lower silver content, but hey, silver's still silver."

I don’t want people to think the site, or ME, makes the call on what is or isn’t considered a silver find.

There are many who don’t include nickels in their silver totals, I do. As in, me personally. There are also many who include silver jewelry in their silver totals, I do not. It all comes down to personal preference, nothing more.
