    Vetran's week #2 Don't overlook those boulevards.

    Thursday and Friday were a change of pace and place this week.
    I started out Thursday morning working a boulevard strip.
    And as you can see it was right up against the road. Click image for larger version

    But these types of things do keep the hunt fun.[ Click image for larger version

ID:	271960 On Friday I decided to hunt the rest of that strip no matter how much traffic noise there was.
    And the rewards were obvious. Click image for larger version

    I thought I had seen you post that design before and looks like it is popular in your area. Thanks for the post and I am going to quit being sorry and see if I can look some more for the
    English coins but like you I have them a while and trade or give them away.

    Johnny the five on the mandrel are from this year.
    I should have lots more.
    Unfortunately people like getting them as gifts. Click image for larger version

    I have found several silver rings with similar designs Johnny. I will see if I can round some of them up and take a picture.

    Just like riding a bike, I always work facing the traffic.

    Nice finds that 1909 nickel sure is shiny. Be careful along the roadways.

    I'll grant you Bruce that you do find a lot of trash but you also turn up some very interesting stuff. I'm always looking over the coins you find to see if I can identify them. It's another challenge like trying to Id an arrowhead but, sometimes, with more to work with.
