    Thank you, fellas!
    Yeah, Tony..I thought the same thing...both sides look equally nice. Every coin at this site comes out better than normal. Dan told me years ago that drainage down a slope helps....and this pace is a perfect example. I consider Dan the E. F. Hutton of MDing

    Very nice Drew! It's in good enough shape that you probably can get a Newcomb variety also.
