ALL YOU GUYS ON THE FORUM.....I hope SCHWEDDY doesn’t mind me telling you this....but the Capped Bust Dime WAS SCHWEDDY’s CAREER 700th SILVER COIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I think he’s being modest not mentioning it, but I just HAD too......UNBELIEVEABLE MAN!!!
Haha! Thanks man. I wasn’t being modest though. I was so excited that I forgot to mention the capped bust was my 700th career silver(not including when we were kids). It’s been quite a ride for the last 7 years since getting back into the hobby together. Never in my wildest dreams would I have imagined we’d do so well. When we were were kids, a mercury dime would put us over the moon. So glad we get to experience this together.

Great finds and day well spent with a buddy. Those two silvers were probably dropped together, since the capped has been worn down nice. Wish I had some old parks like that around here.

Thanks for sharing.

Awesome finds.
The half dimes in very nice shape.
What does that engraving say? Initials and or hopefully a date?

Thanks. The inscription in the ring appears to be WMM. My guess would be that theyre the initials of the groom. I have no way of verifying. But based on the condition of the ring, the style of inscription and th type of carat mark, this is an 1800’s men’s wedding band.
