    Ever Misplace a relic?

    I have a counter stamped large cent somewhere in my house but, for the life of me, I can't find it. At least I have pictures. What I thought interesting about it was that the initials stamped into it are the same as my first and second ones.

    Don't feel bad, I'm missing a $5 slabbed US gold coin, a piece of old but cheap Chinese money, and a marble. Maybe all my marbles. They are here. I put them in a "safe" place while the carpet installers were here. I haven't found the "safe" place yet.

    I found a silver ring on the floor last night. I remember finding it about a year ago, but haven't seen in a long time.

    The cat "takes" stuff and hides it somewhere, she has taken all of the lighters in the house, at least a dozen of them. She like chap sticks too. I can not figure out where her hiding spot is, but I suspect that if I ever find it, it'll have more MDing treasure in it.

    Bad kitty bad!

    I lost a car badge from a 1920's car. I thought maybe it fell in the trash can when we were installing cabinets and counters in the craft room. Boy was I surprised to find it between some picture frames in a drawer about 9 months later. I did lose my 1st sterling engraved spoon when I took all my finds to show my brother-in-law about 150 miles away. I could not find it when I returned home. I know he didn't take it, again, it probably fell in the trash bin in the van and was disposed of.

    During my first week of metal detecting I found a pocket spill of a wheat penny, a buffalo nickel, and a barber dime. I had to wheat penny in a holder, put it on a table, and haven't seen it since. Considering that I recently moved, I don't think that I will ever see it again

    Lost a few more cool items, don't want to remember them right now though lol.

    40 years ago, I was digging a lot of old dumps as a teen. Found a pair of bifocals framed in gold, with German inscriptions. Glass and all intact, beautiful. Took them home, but cannot find them to this day.

    I FOUND IT!!!!!!!!!! But, it isn't a large cent, it's a half cent. I can't quite make out the date but I think it is 1825. I also found an 1837 large cent I forgot I had. Now all I am missing are five or six peace dollars. I'm thinking of offering a reward for them!

    Come to think of it, yes. Years ago somewhere in Nevada I think, I found a full length brass shotgun shell, I had set it down for some reason to do something, and could NOT find that puppy again. Still think about it. And then there is a 1943 steel cent I dug, which had a partial copper coating on it, someone's attempt to counterfeit? It is somewhere in this house, it with a few other things, have not seen it in some years. Where O where can it be??
