    Yep I would have a hard time selling anything that looks good in a display case. It has taken quite some time to fill a case with some decent finds. BTW none of which have any "real" value. But someday.

    To wear around the neck or sew into clothes whilst travelling, makes stealing your purse/cash a little harder.

    Here's mine, found it in the same area as 1/2 of an 1851 1/2 dime and a 1828 Large Cent, plus about 40 Colonial era flat buttons (one was a 1820-1840 US military Great Coat button).
