Found my 2nd Barber half
An order of 4 Garda boxes of halves & 2 boxes dimes & nickels were picked up today. Here are the results of the halves:
Box 1: Skunk
Box 2: Skunk
Box 3: 2 90%: Barber -1896, Walking Lib. - 1942; 6 40% - '67x4, '68x2; 1969 50 New Pence
Box 4: 1 40% - '67
The Barber half is very well worn & is my 2nd one ever found & the 50 New Pence is a 1st for me.
Dime box 1 gave me 4 silver Roseys & the 2nd box gave me 2 silver Roseys. I'm up to 117 silver dimes found so far. I didn't do the 2 nickels boxes yet. So far this month I found 22.4371 ounces of silver.

Nice barber! In case you want to know, that 50 pence is now demonetized after 1993. They were withdrawn due to size, when the smaller ones were introduced.
1/100 of an American dollar is a cent. It is NOT a penny. The word penny is used by several other countries, such as Great Britain, to denote their smallest denomination. In order to be numismatically correct, you must use the term cent to describe the American coin.
