    3 silvers and a unique weight

    Hit a new Baltimore City park today with JC today and the results exceeded expectations. JC is always the "quarter hoarder", so his personal bests of 73 clad quarters and 30 wheats did not surprise me. I dug 90 clad coins: 31 were quarters and one Sacagawea dollar. 6 of my 20 wheats are from the 'teens. Best finds for me are the three silvers: 1936 merc, 1943 Washington, and a 1954 one bolivar coin from Venezuela. (JC dug a 1915 British penny for his foreign coin). Other notable items for me are a plated ring, a square-shaped flat button and a 2 drachms apothecary weight that may date from the late 19th century. The weight is a little greater in diameter than a nickel and much thicker. This one was manufactured by H. Troemner of Philadelphia.
