    One amazing yard

    We’ve always said it only takes one good yard. Of course Don & company took the best coins. At least I got seated.

    1st yard all I got was this sterling whatchamacallit with a date I can only assume is 1899.

    Considering what you and Don both found there it was an amazing yard!

    Congrats on the awesome seated dime! It's in great shape too. It's uncommon to find coins from the 1870s or older here in Illinois.

    I really like the silver clip thingy with the date on it too. Very cool!

    Great, Noah! I once found something very similar to your silver thingy...and was told it was a glove clip. I'll try to dig mine out. Yours is so special bc of the date! Congrats!

    Honestly Don is the one that finds the seated but that’s only because I give him the “good side” of the yard. And really it’s because Alex does the research. Don’t move back here before I get a chance to visit you and find myself a 2000 year old coin held by Christ!

    Glove clip? I never would’ve thought of that but you’re probably right. That’s back in the day when women wore white gloves. Cool!
