    Wisconsin rarity

    More lousy weather here but got out a bit before it rolled in and was lucky to find my second 2 center. Not positive but I think it's the same date as the 1st one (1868) but this one is a bit crustier. Wisconsin Digger

    Thx, Don, Bucknut it was a dead solid 24 on the Nox. It was butted up against some landscape at a military memorial area so I think it got pushed around when they put it in. WD
