pair of 1842 Nova Scotia tokens

Post by leslie(nova scotia) » Sun May 19, 2019 8:34 pm

Decided to take a meander through the woods at the Dingle Park for a few oldies. Was a chore going up the sides of banks and hills but it did pay off with a toasty pair of NS tokens circa 1842. Barely make the dates out.

Then hit a school yard to do some quota hunting with Quota Guru 11. Number one has a loose dial that I will get Navy Davy to fix. I wore out before quota but still a good day out.

On the way home stopped at the bank to use the atm. Was the only one in the lot. A lady enters the lobby, I go out...she got me hemmed in with her car so close to mine that I could not get the door open. I walk back into the atm lobby and ask her to move her car....snooty look. After several minutes she came out and said to me, "I'm in my lane between the lines." I retorted that indeed she was but it was thoughtless to park so close to Nogo.

"Well I'm in my space" she replied with attitude!

To this I said calmly "I think miss you should go back to the atm and take out some common "sense!"

Left with a grin. Home in time to watch game 4 of the Sharks and Blues!

You've had another outstanding day ! Blues had a fabulous day on the ice today. The tokens are a super nice find, even though weathered, it's what we are detecting for.... B-)

I am always amazed at how many coins that you find. On my land sites a few coins a day is good going and more than a dozen is memorable. ::g
