Well today, I went there to buy it and this time, I’ve meet with the owner of the store. At first, He wanted to sell the coin for 20 cents just because it said “20″ on it. I negotiated with him to offer it for 10 cents since the Mexican currency is less valuable than the Canadian dollar. Then, He agreed with the deal.
Later at my home, I checked with a small neodymium magnet and I discovered that the coin sticks to the magnet but the magnetic force is medium. I also checked with a ferrite magnet but the coin only sticks to it a little bit and if you shake the magnet gently, the coin will fall off which means that the magnetic force is small.
I’ve checked online about the real composition of the coin and here are the information:
Since the coin is 72% silver, I was thinking if the other 28% percent is iron, steel or nickel which may explains why the coin is a little bit magnetic?
Does anyone else have the 1942 Mexican 20 centavos coin that is magnetic just like mine?
Here’s another test that I’ve made which is the “Ping” test. I flipped a 2011 Canadian steel penny and a 1980 Canadian nickel made out of pure nickel which are magnetic and saw that steel and nickel don’t do the ping sound. When I flipped the 1942 Mexican coin, it does the ping sound. It is pretty weird…

I was kidding about it being pesky. I LOVE Oak to burn and of course Hickory is right up there. It was one of the selling points of the land - all that awesome wood to burn and smoke with. Can't wait! Almost 24 acres of the stuff, not all mature but that's OK. "Reply To: All my generic….gone.
Save the "pesky" Oak and Hickory. That type of wood is very desirable. I dont know what variaty of Oak you have, but Burl Oak lumber is very expensive. Even if it`s not burl, you can cut it ... "Reply To: All my generic….gone.
" deadtime I'm no ammo counter so the click instead of bang of the AK is not desireable---so, 40 round mags are the thing I like
