Default Wheats galore... Nearly Silver Skunked. Nearly.

Well, maybe not wheats galore, but 9 is a lot for me! Hitting the curb strips downtown. Finally had a nice productive hunt. No silver coins this time, but did recover this little sterling ring. Thanks for looking.

Silver is silver even if you didn't score a silver coin! Congrats on the ring and the pile of coins!

Nice job, that looks like a lot of coins and congrats on the silver band ring! Looks like you found enough clad to get about 5 silver dimes at your local coin shop, so it all adds up!
