Default Back on track with a visit by Ben

Went through my weekly box last evening. I'm glad to say that my buddy Ben decided to stop in... a welcome visit after last week's silver skunk. I have a 90% smile!

I'm glad it ended up here too! Thanks for asking about the mint mark. I didn't even know where to check for it... now I do because I found it!

Nice! The 1955 “Bugs Bunny” Franklin was the hardest for me to find. Never found one roll hunting, so had to buy it to complete the collection.

Thanks ... not sure what the Bugs Bunny Franklin is, so now I have to do a little research. Any time I find a 90% its awesome, but I especially like the Franklins and Walkers!
