Thread: More coins with Don

    More coins with Don

    Well the town isn't hunted out. First yard, got me a silver spoon which I left on the floor of Don's car. Had to be sure not to leave any trash as supposedly I always do! As a result I left SILVER! Fortunately Don is a great guy and won't swipe my stuff. Anyways Got another 1917 standing liberty. They seem to be following me around this year. Course this is a worn type II. Also got a worn 1892 barber dime along with a merc I gave to the home owner.
    Day went along like many others with little more than wheats, but did get a rosie at 8 inches from a yard with nothing else. Last yard, see a lady doing gardening. Sweet lady seemed glad for the company. Found my 2 more Indians there, and a merc married to a wheat penny. It was a strange signal. Rang up like a penny but chirped like silver occasionally. What a fun day. Glad to see Don pulling silver left and right. Guess we'll be going back to that town again.

    Very nice haul Tim. I specialize in LCs. You specialize in SLQs! If we ever meet at some time maybe we could swap a few!

    When you guys say a town is hunted out what do you mean? ...you knocked on every door in the town? ...or just every old house? Amazing job on those SLQs!! Congrats!!

    Nice job out there sir! SLQ is still on my bucket list. I don't do enough door knocking though....

    Hey Don - I will pay $15.00 for the silver spoon. Too funny of a read not to make at least an offer!!!

    An SLQ is the most beautiful coin in my opinion. Great find!
