    Finally some silvers

    Got out for about two hours today. Right after this post I'm off to work for a delivery, isn't life grand

    Went to the house where I had previously gotten an early militia eagle hat plate. Well nothing that good this time but I did manage some keepers.

    The silvers are a 1935 Washington, 1959 Washington, and a 1944 Merc. The 1935 is my earliest Washington.
    Also got 4 wheats with the earliest being 1919.

    Managed to also get my earliest dog tax license.....1907 from my town.

    Thanks for reading and HH everybody.

    We should be slowing down at work shortly so I'll be able to start reading about everybody's great finds.

    Way to go, Al!

    That 1935 Washington is a nice one. It doesn't have much wear on it at all. It must have been dropped in 1935 or thereabouts.

    The 1907 dog tag is way cool too!
