Default Thought I found my first large silver...

I was at an old farmhouse site today and I got a solid 28 on the nox. I dug carefully and saw it.. a large circle over an inch in diameter... I flip the coin to the readable face and there it is. A good luck car coin from the 30s. Ironically the guy crashed and died on his last stunt before retirement. I think Iíll leave this one on the finds shelf. The hunt continues for big silver!

That is an awesome token, congrats. We all have those ALLRIGHT------Aw s--t moments. Just the brief rush is worth the price. And tokens are always welcome find. They usually commemorate a little bit of local history. One day it will be big silver staring back at you. Good luck, Mark
