Default A few older coins today

Made it out this afternoon, after the morning rain showers stopped.
I first went to a softball complex to add on to my clad .
After plucking, $3.00 in an hour,
I was wanting to find old coins.
So I headed over to a trashy yard that I've hunted with some silver success,
I found 8 wheats in a 3'x4' area, along with two Indians, (1896,1906)
Along the sidewalk,
I found a 1924 Merc, &
a 1920 or 26 buffalo.
And a military type button....Navy?
And today is the Navy's birthday?
That Merc gets me to my goal for the season, for half of what I found in silver coins last year,
41 so far. Hopefully we'll still be detecting around Thanksgiving...?

He can waltz around and dig lunch money for awhile and wait for the buzz of that Walker to wear off...
