Default Holy...! The Son almost sent me to the father.

Got in an hour and a half hunt at a spot I noticed on the way to my hunted out park.

The large Crucifix almost gave me a heart attack. About three ounces of silver plated brass.

Also picked up a 1950D Rosie and a 1935 wheat plus a couple bucks in clad.

Came from a large parking lot island people have ignored near an old school and park.

That crucifix....wow! Largest one I ever found. I wish the chain it was on had been there!

Huge, dang it ain't silver...

I just discovered something neat, and slightly trivial..

If you set a dime on your screen then zoom to get the dime in the picture the exact same size, you can get an exact idea of the size of the other objects..
