    1943-s Walking Liberty Half ~ 1957-w play coin ~ toy cars

    Hello!

    I took a road trip yesterday to a little town where I received a lead on some property to detect on. I was hoping it was gonna be a good site, but it turned out to be a bust. So I drove a little further into a bigger town to find somewhere to do some treasure hunting. I did OK, especially for an area I was totally unfamiliar with. Here's what I dug:

    1943-S Walking Liberty Half dollar
    1957-w Play coin, one cent
    4 wheat cents dating from 1919 to 1957
    5 clad quarters
    16 clad dimes
    3 modern nickels
    52 memorial cents
    2 toy cars

    I took pic's of the treasures before and after I cleaned them up. This half dollar is my silver coin #22 for the year (first silver half for the year)!

    I really like finding these play coins. Especially this type with a 'W' mint mark (directly above the '1'). They are made in Waco Texas ~ and have the Texas State flag on the back! I took close-up pic's through a microscope so you can see all the details of this little play coin.

    Thanks for looking!
    Neil

    Congrats on silver #22 for this year....so far.
    The play coin is really neat and I know you like
    to find them almost as much as finding silver
    coins.

    It's amazing just how much treasure people loose and we manage to find.

    Thanks man!

    Yeah, those little play coins are right in between wheat cents and Rosie dimes on my personal "treasure" scale . . . . better than finding a wheat cent, but not quite as good as a Rosie dime!
