    I'm sure Covid didn't help. Specially when you do a lot of door knocking. But you were still able to pocket a few nice finds for the month!
    Nice digs Don!

    Is there anything on the other side of the Coca~Cola token?

    I'll post a picture of the back of the token tomorrow. It's an arcade token.
