Lunchtime hunt nets over $2.00!
It's pretty cool to be able to hit a city park on a lunch break and find some clad. I was able to unearth $2.09 (6 quarters, 4 dimes, 1 nickel and 14 pennies). Some of these finds were pocket spills-which allowed for fewer digs. I also found two dog tags-which one had a name and phone number. I ended up leaving a message for the person-and they phoned me back and said that it wasn't a match. At least I gave it a try. It's always nice to be able to have something back that was sentimental.
