Congrats on the nice score! Now let's be truthful here Mark, since you've been hunting a bit with Craig, he has been saying on here for years that he throws out the Felix pennies. That's not true right? You've never witnessed him do that and he makes that up right?

When i am lazy I pull them out of my finds pouch and throw them on the parking lot but I usually just go to a trash can and throw them out.. but the old sites we hunt don't usually have Felix pennies..

You couldn't let Mark answer? You're afraid the truth will get out?
