A labor of love for 90 minutes. The 1939 wheat cent was a big surprise. Considering the area is only 15-20 years developed.

Added to the hot wheels collection, $1,29 clad richer and a dog tag 🏷 with the name Wrigles 🐢

Tag has a phone number on it. Curious to see how long ago it was lost, if the number is still good and if they want their dog tag back in remembrance.

Another days labor πŸ™ŒπŸΌ

Nice!!! Congrats!!! You never know !

Just a footnote. I called the phone number on the dog tag. I asked the guy if he wanted the dog tag back. He said he never had a dog name Wrigles.
I then asked him how long he had his current number and he stated 8 years.

Considering phone numbers usually have some time before they get reappointed to a new person. I would guess Mr. Wrigles is over the Rainbow 🌈 bridge and itβ€˜s anyone guess what happened to the owners.

Every find has a story πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘
