I don't know if this has been posted, but I recently found a 2004 nickel with a FRENCH hand on the back It's an image of an American hand (hand with eagle on it) shaking a French hand to commemorate the Lousiana Purchase. I thought everyone hated the French, is the Gov't trying to get back on their good side or something?

Get a grip. That would commemorate the US greatly expanding its land base and the beginning of the french slide towards complete irrelevancy on the world scene.

i wouldnt be too upset.

just think. how long would it take to initiate a change on a nickle that hasnt been changed in 45+ years.

im sure the dicision was made well before the french became pussies over the war on terror.
