Last week I asked where to find the date on these coins (the Native American dollars).
Jon Radel writes (correctly):
On the edge, which is why you couldn't find it quickly when describing the one you auctioned off a couple of weeks ago.
I'd forgotten about that - we had one of these coins in the auction for kids at the Annandale Coin Show. It's not obvious, even for a veteran numismatist, to look on the edge of a coin for the date.
