Default Last Tuesday at a Tearout

Found some nice goodies last Tuesday evening at a tearout. The mosquitoes finally got the best of me after dark and I cried uncle, but not before finding these. The highlight was a lead counterfeit attempt at a Morgan Dollar. I have seen these posted in the past but never found one until now.

Great finds. The counterfeit Morgan is laughably poor. I'd like to come across a tearout like that. Hope you'll find another one.
