    A couple of keepers from the past few weeks

    Hi all,

    Here's a couple of keepers I dug from the last two weeks. The capped bust dime is an ironic find, since Jeff posted the exact same coin just recently! How strange. His is in better shape, but I'll take it - my fourth for the collection. Also nabbed Vermont CW/Militia and Dumbartonshire military buttons which were nice finds. I unfortunately dinged the IH at 11 o'clock, but she's a keeper in her condition - plus it's an 1864L variety. I'll get around to posting my large coppers soon - quite a nice haul on those this year. Thanks for looking!

    John
