    I really had a great month....just wish my silver pocket watch was half as nice as DiggerDon's. Also this is the first month in what seems like a year where I did not find a war nik...probably need a new coil.

    Happy hunting - Jared

    Great finds. You must be close to the border with all the Canadian coinage you find. Great month indeed. I did find a war nickel Sunday so I got you covered for July. WD

    I'd agree you had a great month!
    Was that quarter in a fire?
    I think I've found three war nickles in 10 years.
    Is that rifle pin WW1?
    Congrats, Jared!

    What a great month indeed! So many wonderful finds to drool over.

    That Barber Quarter has nice detail. I found a Barber Half one time that had that black sulfide on it. Angel's method of removing it worked wonders.

    The Barber just has a bunch of that black sulfide crap on it. Too bad as it is in great shape too.

    Yes I think it is a Rifle Collar stud from WW1 era.

    I think I will give it a try. Won't hurt anything.

    Great work Bucknut!! I have found about 8 war nickels in the last 2 years (no offense to others, but I thought it is common). My challenge is a Buffalo nickel believe it or not. They certainly don't roam under my coil.

    The variety you found is why I think we all do this. Just never know what is going to come out from just below the surface.
