Default 2 more familiar faces

Well, I've been stretching my sights a little further out to scope out some older parks I haven't wiped out already......
On Sunday I had a go at a park an hour and a half away and it was pretty clear of targets but I did manage two deep Barber dimes.
Yesterday I made the painful decision to drive out there in mid week after working a 12 hour shift......I almost turned around at 20 minutes, but kept driving and after two long construction delays finally got back to the park.
Not much left there but I spotted a large yard across the street I saw a car there so I went over and asked and the guy said yes.
That one was picked over pretty good as well, but apparently by the same machines that can't see beyond 6 inches.....
Another hour and basically a replay of Sundays hunt ....only one of the 4 had a readable LIBERTY on it , but oh well......still nice to see something other than mercs and rosies......
I actually had a pretty juicy permission at a huge old field but no time left yesterday......hopefully a few left out there for me yet......hopefully a few big Barbers and a mintmark would be nice one day......
I re-included the two Barbers from my last post just to show all the Barbers together.....
well, this gets me up to 41 for the year....way way more than I thought I'd manage.....if the overtime demand stays low maybe I can get a hundred again , ....I haven't done that in a couple years ......

Taking advantage of opportunity Bob, that is the name of the game. Congrats on adding another pair of Barber's to your coffers. The 1911 is crisp. Trapper

Congrats on a great hunt and a sweet silver score Bob. You may have started off slow this year but coming on strong as of late. Way to go. HH Mark
