Hey Gang!

Another beautiful day here in Southcakalacky! I had a lot of fun today with some cool surprises!

I found this awesome Roman coin from some place called Copy! Not sure where that is.....but it's got to be far away!! It must be worth a fortune! I can hardly wait to sell it!

I found my heaviest to date honkin Man's silver ring! That was a very cool surprise. It didn't clean up as pretty as I wanted it to, but it's still nice to add to my growing collection.

The Presidential Dollar was another nice surprise. I've been finding quite a few of those lately. I'll take them all anyday!!

And finally......all the usual stuff......pretty decent clad count for the day! I'm a happy camper! :hello2:

It sure does add up Matt! I can't tell you how many times I've needed a few dollars to get through the week and start cleaning and rolling those bad boys! It's such a nice benefit to our hobby ;D

That copy mint seems to be making more and more coins every year. But I bet it was still good for a few second rush! :thumbsup:

You did good Cindy! And you never know, someday you just may find such a coin in what appears to be a "normal" place. Nice ring too :thumbsup: Glad you got out and had fun!
