    thats the plan. I have to seal the box quickly. It’s already starting to flake away

    This is way too cool and unique to not vote BANNER on. Itís not just the finds for me but the whole package. Not to mention Iíve yet to find any Capped silver. To find both of those early coins in that little container is a really awesome recovery. Iíd be doing some serious digging there

    Congrats on the very cool recovery the Cap. silver really looks crisp.
    I've only dug one container containing coinage (4 LCs-4 transit coupons) dug lots of containers over the yrs that rattled-only to find a broken mirror, dried make-up, or dirt. To dig something this old and being silvers inside proves some of little dreams do come true.

    It looks like it was put in right away then buried or lost! This is also my first container that ever contained anything good

    Thanks for the BANNER vote! It’s my first capped Silver too. Hopefully I don’t get buried by this snowstorm
