Default First big silver and tokens!

I haven't been out swinging much in the last few months, but was able to play for a few hours yesterday and today. I found the '67 half dollar in my ex wife's yard. Karma baby
I found 3 tokens as well in another yard. The savings medallion is interesting and it's aluminum.

Congrats on the big silver! That's nice of your ex to let you detect in her yard.

Nice trade tokens! They're always my favorite finds - always pretty unique, and you can often get some neat history from researching them a bit.

Congrats on the big silver, too!

Some good stuff there. I believe the LOOK token is from LOOK magazine, I know I have at least one but I think mine is a bit different, I believe they did quite a few.

Nice going on the Kennedy half. I heard that they are harder to find than Walkers.
