    One room school house field sites

    I’ve located a few more fields that once had one room school house on them. This post is from the first two fields. The best coin of the bunch is a stunning 1914-D Barber dime. The best relic is the Shoe company token date July 1910. Thanks for looking and stay heathy.

    Great finds, Jeff! I love the shoe token. The Boy Scouts of America were founded in 1910. It looks like the Excelsior Shoe Company started in Portmouth, Ohio in about 1889. Look at how massive their factory was!

    Your accent sounds almost Canadian. I don't hear that on "That 70s Show."

    I think so the mintage was about 9.8 million. The PCGS lowest grading is 1 and that value is listed at $35. Mine is about a 12 but it has the environmental damage, a 12 is valued at $95.
