1883 Nickel - streets of Houston

This was found in the streets of downtown Houston years ago when they were tearing up all the streets in preparation for their first hosting of the Super Bowl. From concrete to asphalt to cobblestones to dirt. The coin was only about 1" down in the freshly graded soil.
