Hello all,,,
It was a bit breezy today which made the mid 50 degree temps feel just a wee bit chilly but I couldn't stay in the house another minute. I wasn't feeling all that great so I decided to hit one of our local tot-lots to help keep the dig'n to a minimun. I did fairly well by my standards, as I don't dig much clad in the places I usually hunt, and ended the day with a total of $1.94 which gave me my (1000th+1) clad coin for the year. I also recovered another religious pendant and although it's not silver it's still in good condition.

Hope you all are doing well and have a great day, Leon...

Congrats on 1001 coins! Are you sure that pendant is not silver? Might have a mark on the ring attached. HH, Mike

Thanks guys,,,
I took a closer look at the medal, (Medal is what most places selling them online call them. I would still call it a pendant, or a charm.) and I believe it may just be made from "Oxidized Silver" like the ones shown here. ( Although this one is a little larger than the ones shown there:( 2.5mm H x 1.6mm W )

If you look around the words "For/us" on the reverse you can see tiny air bubbles which I think adds more evidence that it may simply be Oxidized Silver. I found a definition of Oxidized Silver at this site. Oxidized silver is produced when atomic oxygen reacts with silver. I didn't bother to look up "atomic oxygen", ;D what ever that is. lol...

Also, most of the medals I did find that were Sterling Silver all have a wide, flat band around the edge with script on it, such as the ones shown here.

But, that's one of the things I love most about this hobby, is the fact that it teaches you so many different things... ??? huh?
Again, Thanks for the comments and have a great day, Leon...

And yes the clad does add up...
If your running Windows 2000, Xp, or Vista, you can download my new program to see just how much it adds up to...
I am offering this program to all Tnet members as an early Christmas present...

SO. Leon's the one to blame for all this wind and cold in Alabama, huh? :D Brrrrr...it was cold here today! That's a nice looking pendant, Leon! :thumbsup: Great that you could get out and hunt.

Nana :wink:

And that's a great idea on the clad counter too! :)
