    Awesome coin spill and some neat relics

    Getting out sparingly but have picked up some cool tokens and relics along with an awesome 3 Barber Dime coin spill yesterday. Also, in the photos an old ambulance car, Pharmacist weight, Red Ryder lucky penny, Huckleberry Hound kids ring, a bottle token and the smallest silver ring I have ever found. Fall is here in the Wisconsin north so detecting weather should be ideal. Thx Wisconsin Digger

    WOOOHOOO! Super nice! Did you find the "lucky coin" before you found the barber spill? I used to love Huckleberry Hound as a kid

    Not sure why I said Huck "Finn" and yes the "lucky" token came before the spill.

    1,000+ silver coins
    92pcs of 1700's Trade Era Silver

    125+ War of 1812 Era buttons and relics
    My wife
    (probably should have started with that one)

    Funny you mention that! I also have yet to find a Barber coin this year, yet I found a seated dime and my first 1700s coin...
