    Slow day but unusual ring

    Stopped by a park on the way to my breakfast meeting this morning and found this Commonwealth of the Bahamas nickel and this American Airlines Junior Stewardess ring. Don't think the ring is that old, but it was at 6" deep under a tree root. Coin is just unusual for this part of the country. Monty

    Glad you got out Monty and found a few goodies, I hope to next week. I had my chemo Wed. and have been too poop to pop or just too durn tired. Hope next week is a good week for both of us. we need rain before I can do too much digging, seems like we got it all at once and now it's holding out on us. Have a good day.

    Hey Monty, any coin with a pineapple on it is cool in my book! You did good today!

    Re: Slow day but unusual ring

    Nice digs Monty, glad to see that you got out and hunted!

    The ring is I think something the airlines, back in the day
    used to give out to little girls flying for the first time,
    boys got pilot wings, to help calm them and devert their attention.

    Nice coin too. I found a ahamas one dollar coin yesterday.

    Smiles!

    Re: Slow day but unusual ring

    Nice finds Monty ... Is that a pineapple on the coin?
    I am drinking a pina colada as I read your post.
