    I would never have guessed 64. From those pictures, it looks like it should have graded higher.

    Houghton is still in business, and still manufacturing detergents, lubricants, and fluids, including Cosmolubric. (The latest is Cosmolubric B-230). Their very first product, Cosmoline, is still being used as a rust preventative today.

    South Haven, MI - Van Ostrand's Pharmacy, Brass, 21mm, 4.70g Circa 1912

    Established around 1873 Van Ostrand's was one of the premier drug stores in Southwest Michigan, stocking all manner of goods including "drugs and medicines, paints and oils, toilet and fancy goods,and an elaborate onyx soda fountain". Probably a likely place in 1890 to pick up that off the shelf potassium cyanide you would need to clean your coins with (seriously, do NOT attempt) ☠.

    That isn't the copper core showing at 9:00 to 12:00 in the obverse picture?

    I don't think that identifying the year will add anything to the value. That one is only worth a cent,  if you can get someone to accept it.
    It is copper, though, so as Karen Holcomb suggested in another thread, it might be worth saving in case you need to melt it down to make ammo for the Zombie Apocalypse.

    To quote from the other forum:
    "This is an uncentered broadstrike in which there was slight contact with the collar as the coin expanded. It's not enough to be considered a partial collar error, as grazing contact with the collar is quite common in broadstrikes. The obverse shows collar clash." (Cited from: https://www.cointalk.com/threads/error-folks.360149/#post-4513913)
    I am not familiar with Mike Diamond, but he has been recognized by Coneca for many years for his research articles, so he obviously knows more than I do about such things. I thought the definition of a broadstrike was that the coin was struck completely out of the collar, and that any contact with the collar on the edge of the coin made it a partial. I stand corrected. I learned something new again today .

    History by Gil Hoffman: (Mississippi Rails website)
    The Leaf Lumber & Veneer Works was incorporated at Leaf, Greene County on April 14, 1924, by B. E. Green, of McLain; J. C. Daughdrill, of Leaf, and H. M. Hempstead, of Mobile, AL, with authorized capital stock of $100,000. In early 1924 the company purchased the plant of the Overstreet Veneer Company, at Beaumont, Perry County, and moved it to Avent, adding a bandsaw, edger and trimmer. The Avent mill, with a cutting capacity of 25,000 feet per day, cut hardwood and cypress. 

    In April 1929 the company bought the plant and timber holdings of the Southern Saw Mill Company, at Greenville, Florida, and moved its operations from Avent, MS, to Greenville, FL, with operations commencing there in July 1929.
