    1920s Bull Durham Tobacco Charm

    I was bored yesterday afternoon so I went for a quick one hour hunt in the farm field next to my house. There used to be an old house there.

    Nothing worth posting, really, except for the Bull Durham Tobacco charm/pendant. I thought it was kinda cool. On the back it says "WARRANTED 14 K GOLD PLATED". There is one listed on eBay that states it is from the 1920s.

    Yep! And to add insult to injury, it was a 1991 quarter! Not even an old clad coin!

    That's a cool find! I like the "Warranted Gold Plated." That's kind of like the "Authentic Replica Spanish Cob" that I got from Kellyco. It makes it sound really official!

    "Authentic Replica Spanish Cob"
    That seems like a lot of high tones for an hour from a place right next door! I hope there's more to come, Tony. I'm hoping to get today for the first time.
