    Remember its not the treasures we find or the length of the journey. But the fact that when we are done we can look back at our life and smile with a satisfied feeling that we enjoyed the trip. So always "Keep Swinging And Keep Smiling"

    An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

    So you found it yesterday and were able to return it yesterday? Awesome find. Congrats on returning it to the family also. Did he make it alive through the war?
