    If you ran one of everything you'd like to find under any metal detector you could account for every tone it can make. So why not?

    Before the effects of the fire it looked pretty crisp, now it's a little too crispy. Still I wouldn't kick it out of the pouch. Congrats on the big silver.

    Congratulations on the Half Baked Barber! Like Carolina Tom mentioned anyone can find a nice unmarred Barber half. It takes a REAL MAN to rescue one from a CONFLAGRATION! Your bowed Barber has that special quality that tells a unique story unto itself.

    Congrats on your first Barber Half. At least you can identify it as a Barber, and it still has a clear date. Even though its warped, it should fit in a cardboard 2x2 holder so you can enjoy it the rest of your life !

    Good for you finding it among other targets! Isn't it great that it survived such trauma and is still beautiful despite it? It is kind of like us.each with our own degrees of trauma...and still beautiful!
