related to a jokey post I made about another coin...
In old westerns guys always seemed to bite coins when they got paid to make sure they were solid gold. Are there ever teeth marks found on gold coins
? I think it'd be pretty cool to have an ancient coin with bite marks.
I guess if they were gold, there would not be teeth marks. But someone's coin collection
surely includes is a gold-covered lead fake
with cowboy teeth marks. Weren't they lead fakes
that the bite protected against? As a kid I used to test coins with my teeth, without any idea what I was testing for or why; I'd just seen it in the movies.
