    Two silver dimes today...found them eight feet apart

    Found a 1926-D Mercury dime and a 1908 Barber dime today. Just about passed out from heat stroke in the process, but I got 'em.

    They were about eight feet apart and both about four inches under the surface. The Merc is in pretty good shape. It rang up 25-26 on the Equinox. The Barber is more worn and has a gouge in the rim on the lower right in the pic. That one rang a little higher at 26-27.

    Also found a very green 1936 Wheatie about a foot from the Barber dime.

    I like them both. The Barber is in good shape compared to what we get around here.

    Looking for Error coins from the bank. Update: I can MD using my wheelchair!
    Congrats! On Wisconsin
    Here I’m sitting, broken hearted, removed my spacesuit and insulating underclothes, attached the plastic bag, strapped myself into the zero gravity toilet, activated the suction mechanism, and only farted.

    As the biker approached, his tee-shirt said “ MAKE 7 “ . As he roared away it said “UP YOURS”.
