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

Stellar finds! Congrats! That badge is killer! What is this "chain cent" you refer to? I don't think I've heard of this?
The first coin ever produced by the United States was a 1793 Large cent. It had a flowing hair lady Liberty on one side and the back had a wreath that was a chain instead of the more common wreath....so it is often called a "chain Cent". Very rare, very valuable coin....
