I found a few really old coins in my Dad's stuff after he died.
Some of the pennies are really thick but almost rubbed smooth, remember someone telling me years ago they wouldn't be worth anything, think you have to have some sort of collection before anyone would be interested. Would still like to try and find out if any of them are worth anything though.

It looks rather like this one listed on ebay. You can make out the hair on your coin. The pic on ebay doesn't show the reverse of the coin though
