    My first Barber and boy is it thin!

    I've been detecting a little over a year and a half now and have been looking for my first Barber. Got it today at a 1920 permission. It is barely recognizable as a Barber but I'm glad to get it. Also found one 1951D wheat and two Oklahoma Tax Tokens (1mil and 5 mil).

    That's were the expression "one thin dime" came from That coin was probably in circulation during the depression when many silver coins were worn flat through excessive exchange. "Don't have two nickles to rub together" I believe also stemmed from that era.

    Wow! Whoever last owned that Barber must have used it for a brake pad, but a great find all the same!
