    37 Merc and another walker!

    Back at the silver farm this afternoon, I decided to hit a cottage I'd already done, except work perpendicular to my last hunt. This netted a 37 Merc, four wheats, including a 25, two Catholic medallions and another Pittsburgh Railways token. If you haven't guessed, the token is the "walker" in my title, since, by losing the token, someone had to walk! Another beautiful day in PA, and Halloween night looks delightful; I'll be out with two Spidermen.

    Man, that place is still giving them to ya. Way to go and keep knocking them in.

    Actually, halfdime, I was really expecting to see another Walker in your post. There's bound to be at least 6 more of those halfs at your Silver Farm. Continued success at your "Farm".

    Re: 37 Merc and another walker!

    Follow up to Halloween night: while we were out, I got permission to hunt a yard right across an alley from another yard where I found a large cent, many wheats, a Merc and a silver Washington. According to the owner, she was doing some yard work and found a 26 wheat, 26 Buff, 26 Merc and 26 SLQ in one place. The house was built in 1926, and she thanked me profusely for asking! How's that for a treat? I'm going to find the 26 Walker and 26 gold!

    Now Bob, had I capitalized walker it would have been misleading! I guess the public doesn't like to be duped, even tongue in cheek. A year, from now, however, we just might elect another Clinton; talked about misled! I will take your admonition to heart and try to contain myself. As for the avatar, he is someone who could become very well recognized in Ohio, where he works in a very public job. We worked together a lifetime ago, and he was an influence that continues to this day.
