    Draped bust half cent, KgIII, three silvers and more!

    Out visiting my buddy now and got to try a new place yesterday while he was at work. Turned out to be a pretty good site!
    Within 5 minutes got a King George III half penny. Then got a nice old lock and skeleton key. Was pumped after that and after 7 or so hours ended with:
    Two mercs
    Wartime nickel
    Two V nickels
    Three buffalo nickels
    Indian head cent
    Draped bust half cent! My first. A little toasty but that's fine with me. Thought it was a two cent piece at first but was a nice surprise to see the draped bust image.

    Does anyone have an idea on the lock's age?

    Nice finds.
    A toasty LC is still a great find. My 1st was so toasted it took a year to even figure out what it was...

    Excellent finds! I'm no help on the age of the lock, but by any chance does the skeleton key fit it? That would be a first...matching lock and key, found separately. Thx for sharing, great stuff...Ddf

    WOW! That's a pretty impressive haul of keepers there. Congrats on your first Darped Bust Half Cent. Toasty or not you have it notched off the bucket list. Great hunting.

I have given my sacred oath “to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States of America against all enemies foreign and domestic.” I intend to fulfill that oath. Third, I believe in the family unit and, in particular, my family unit. I have sworn that I will give my life, if it is required, in defense of God, the Constitution, or my family.
