    1st Half Dollar, Walking Liberty 1943, Simplex w/SP24

    After hundreds of pull-tabs and other hooey since January, a half dollar! It rang up 94 with iron grunts, about 10 inches down. At first I thought it was a soda can since it was so shiny. A very happy moment[ATTACH=CONFIG]1880369

    Great find man! My first silver ever was a 1943 Walker. Nothing like seeing that big silver disk popping out of the ground!
