    I Was Praying For a Rosie!!

    Once again, I needed a damn Rosie for the dime grand slam, and once again I couldn't find one!!

    Tim and I went back to the town where I dug the half dime last week. I'm glad we did. Slow, but steady all day. I came home a happy camper.
    We could tell its been hit before, most of our finds were deep. Just happy they left a few for us. I think we'll try it again this upcoming Saturday.

    Here are my finds for the day

    Great haul. The Rosies must of got pounded in the 70's with all the older machines. I'm guessing your OK with what they left behind. All the older coins seem to be in nice shape as well. Congrats. WD

    Nice job Don. Banner day!

    Noah - so kind of you to give Don a silver. You think Don would be able to get one of those.
