    My best find of the year is on New Years EVE!!

    My best find of the year was found on the very last day of the year and wasn't dug out of the ground ~ it was found in my own pocket change!! I got this today in a stack of 25 $1 bills from my bank. It is the first mismatched serial number ERROR dollar bill that I have ever found! The serial number on the left starts with a "0" and the serial number on the right starts with a "2" ~ and it is on a STAR note (replacement note). It isn't in the best of conditon, but I still should be able to get a few hundred dollars for it on eBay! WOOHOO

    Got dog tags?  I'm looking for old dog tax tags and dog license tags! From any city, any county, and any state (prefer pre-1970) ~

    That's pretty cool, Neil! 'twas a bad day in the serial numbering department, for sure.

    Happy New Year!

    Very kewl find! I've never even thought about looking for that....
    I did, however, get a 2004 Wisconsin state error/variation quarter a couple of years ago in some change back from a drive thru. It was the extra low leaf variation that I sold on Ebay for almost $200.
    Good luck and happy hunting in '13!
