Default Big Silver day and Sterling

I hunted a 1940's house with a friend today and hit some good targets. My first silver half in a long time and two Rosies. Wheaties were every where and the odd looking ring is stamped Sterling. I put some polish on it and the black tarnish on the rag tells the tail, silver. The Eagle Scout Dad pin is a first for me and then there is the cub scout medal. Just never know what will pop out of the ground.

Default Silver Half

Nice going digging those three silvers. My older brother was a Cub Scout, and I remember the oath, and the badges he would (mom) sow on his uniform when he would earn them. That was in the early fifties. I remember the Ben Franklin's too, along with the merc's, walkers, and even SLQ's. I would collect money monthly for my paper route. Every coin was either a wheat, or silver.
