    Hit the triple triple play today - 1, 5, and 10 cent plays

    Got up early this morning to get a few hours in before heading to work. No luck at the 1st stop in downtown Seattle, then headed up Capital Hill. Found a scrapped parking strip in front of a newly pored foundation. Figured it was worth a shot, and it was!

    10 centers: Barbers 1906 & 1907D, Merc 1939S, Rosie 1958D
    5 centers: Liberty 1891, Canadian 1914 , Buffalo 1936S
    1 centers: Indian 1905, Wheats 1913, 1919s, 1919s, 1920, 1920s, 1924s, 1929s & 1929s, and a handful of Zincs

    Ok, ok, maybe the zincs don't really count. But it sounded good.

    Unbelievable! I find these great old spots to hunt and end up with twisted, rusted unidentifiable pieces of metal and lots of bottle caps..you hunt a parking strip and find silver. I'm calling NO FAIR

    Congratulations on some great finds
