    WooHoo, the river gave up a Seated Silver Mermaid!

    So, the rain forced me to return to my 3 year old honey hole only to find an untouched spot on the bottom (go figure) that gave up coins, BOTTLES, ammo, many marbles (19) and 2 pipe stems, oh and of course the 1890 Seated Liberty Dime (mermaid). This is my first seated anything so I am on cloud nine.

    The Whiskey appears to have a sand pontil and the clear, rolled lip med says "Johnson's American Anodyne Liniment".

    The rest of the coins are clads with the exception of 2-1917 Wheaties.

    Excellent haul and a wonderful coin!

    A small question if I may, for anyone, how does a person tell a "wonderful" marble from "just another marble"? LOL
    I really don't know how to tell the differences.

    HH!
    I have to take my detector out for a walk every now & then. If I don't, it starts leaving little piles of pull tabs all over the house!! HH! Everybody!
