    Happy to be on the board

    Drove with Don until we got to where the snow was minimal. Got my first cigar token ever. And I got my first Indian for the year!

    Good start to the year. I'm sure they'll be many more IHs ahead for you in '20.

    Lifetime totals:
    8 Large Cents, 389 Indian Heads, 2 Two Cent Pieces, 1 Capped Bust Half Dime, 1 Seated Half Dime, 9 Shield Nickels, 67 V Nickels, 122 Buffalo Nickels, 31 War Nickels, 16 Seated Dimes, 128 Barber Dimes, 384 Mercury Dimes, 237 Rosies, 4 Seated Quarters, 15 Barber Quarters, 17 Standing Liberty Quarters, 85 Silver Washingtons, 1 Seated Half, 3 Barber Halves, 16 Walking Liberty Halves

    I love tokens because the first 10 years of metal detecting for me was in an area rich in tokens (coal camps). I always loved the aluminum ones because, sometimes, they come out of the ground looking like yours. Great find.
