    First Meager finds of 2021

    I hit two different sites with a friend today and got one good find from both. The first site produced an 1880 H Canada 5 cent piece and the second site gave me a general service eagle cuff button with no backmark. The Canada coin is a first and, while the eagle button might seem fairly common to many here it is very uncommon for my part of the world. I am in south west Georgia. I straightened the coin out with one tap from my hammer!

    1800s Canadian is nothing to sneeze at.

    Thanks for all the replies guys. I only call them meager because of what I see everyone else post here. This part of the country only goes back to the early 1800s.
