Default While the weather was good.

I left the job site a bit early today so that I could enjoy the last bit of nice weather. Hunted two yards which gave up a few cool items. First plug was the 45 merc, then I got two wheats. Switched spots, and picked up the 44 merc. Next was a deep silver quarter signal which I was very excited about. It turned out to be a Military "great seal" button marked Horstman Phila which was issued between 1902 and 1932. The last good target was the ring which is marked STERLING, and has a makers mark.

Thanks for the kinds words. I never thought of it as a trifecta, but I was very happy with the assortment of goods. This was between two private yards, door knocking has been very good to me this year.
