interesting silver today
#1
I have not been out much...spent the week in the hospital with my elderly Mom....but finally got an afternoon out. Cornfields are my best option now...so down the road I found a buckle, ox knob, 1991 Aruba casino token (my kids must have lost this from their grandparents...but how it ended up in the manure and spread on the field??? Too funny!), half a bull ring, and a 1918 French Franc (silver) with a bullet hole in it!!!!! What story does this coin have? Brought home from WWI??? Shot there or here? Interesting! Erin

Glad you got out Erin. I'm still doing yard work, hopefully tomorrow I can get out. Nice silver, it is interesting trying to guess how, where or why things get lost, I'm always amazed at finding differnet things.

Consider that there were "crack shots" touring with carnivals, shooting coins and then handing them to spectators as souvenirs.

Congrats on your finds!
