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 :laughing7: 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.
