Coin A Praise


I used my metal detector at my in-laws. We went to check on Psycho Kitty (AKA: Gracie) and while Cora was inside, I searched the front yard. This is part of my effort to learn the intricacies of detecting and telling junk from coins. I found a Pepsi can. Oh, well. I continued and got another signal similar to the first. This one turned out to be a fifty cent piece. Yes, my second find was a fifty cent piece. Mel must have nothing better to do with his money then to throw it around outside. I did not search the entire yard, it was hot, so after finding a few pot metal fragments that may have once been a sprinkler (what is it about me and sprinklers), I went inside to cool off. Cora praised me, after much nagging (me nagging her for praise), for such a good find.

Here are a few pictures of my find.

I have to admit it is a cool coin.

That is a very cool coin, but I am wondering about all the holes you must have put into your father-in-laws yard. I'll bet he was real impressed. LOL
