Default Silver Barber in Public Park.

A forum member reached out to me and said he was visiting my area from Iowa. Was able to meet up with him for a short hunt this morning at an old city park. He had been there the day before and did really well. Big silver.

I was able to dig this Barber dime and old PETER'S SHOES advertisement thimble along with a few old wheat pennies. Really fun to meet other forum members and dig a little silver. Thanks for looking.

A Barber is a great find anywhere, but even better coming out of a public park! The advertising thimble is pretty cool, too! Nice hunting!
