    Captain Midnight Medal and Some Silver Dimes

    I'm pounding away at the median and still digging up some keepers. Today I dug up a Captain Midnight Medal that at first glance I
    thought was just another junkie religious medal. When I got home I was pleasantly surprised to see " Captain Midnight" on the back side!
    Also dug up a motor oil token, 3 wheaties, and two silver dimes.

    An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

    Great saves; and fond memories.
    I'm still hooked on Ovaltine, the show's sponsor in the 50s.

    Awesome finds, I love that Capt Midnight item. Those old radio-serial items are just too cool.
