No need to make a short story long. Fluke & I tried about 1,000 sites this weekend, but, most were duds. We had to rely on a few of our old stand-by's...again. 

I had high hopes of real old silver, however, not this time. I eked out 2 mercs and what is probably one of the best looking Indians I ever dug - a 1903 (nicked it with my lesche though Sad. My best find was a big token circa 1914 that the American Red Cross gave out to promote a bazaar to support the troops & their families. I enjoy these types of finds, as there's a story behind them. Included a link to what the coin looks like in new condition.

Nice finds Joe and I agree that you may be a tad spoiled. That 23 Merc is in FABULOUS shape! With all the IH's you pull, what's "one" with a nick? That Wilson/American Red Cross token is great! Like the reference that goes along with it.
