My son and I had a good day yesterday. Hunted two yards, one was 1826 and the other 1880's. Finds included a 1936 walker Half, Silver Rosie, 5 Indians, a bunch of wheaties, 2 store tokens, a lead soldier, an old broach, a neat old soap dish, 2 war medals including one inscribed "Maj. Gen. Fitzhugh Lee... Commander". He was the nephew of Robert E Lee, and also a major general for the CSA during the civil war, later a major general for the United States and later the 40th governor of Virginia. We had a lot of fun finding these items. KIMG2281.JPG KIMG2291.JPG

"Had a pretty good day yesterday."​

Understatement of the year !! You & your son had a GREAT day !!
Congrats on the great finds & thanks for sharing the nice story & history.
That's what it's all about. A great day out with your son & having fun finding some great & historic treasures. That medal alone, if it did belong to the 40th Governor of Virgina with his prolific resume, deserves a banner vote I.M.O. CHEERS !!

Good day is certainly an understatement! Congrats to you both for the incredible finds- houses that old could have some early Indians- any better dates among them?

Stellar finds! Congrats! That badge is killer! What is this "chain cent" you refer to? I don't think I've heard of this?
