Welcome to the forum Pam!

That's a nice find, it's semi key date coin and would be worth a tidy sum if in better condition, but it's at the very least a $100 coin, could be worth more but hard to tell the actual condition from your photos which are a bit out of focus.

Hopefully you haven't cleaned it or you have aiready lost at least 50% of it's value, NEVER clean any old coins, you will lose a lot of value if you do no matter how bad they look when you find them, even wiping the dirt off can sometimes scratch a coin if you're not careful and lessen it's value, leave the cleaning if done at all to the experts and the value will be retained.

I'm not at all interested in it's monetary value, it's a part of history to me.
