Only the face a mother could love, Greg.  :) A great find for sure. Where was she found?

My kiddo found it down at the local creek (Maxwell Creek) here in Murphy, TX.  Great find!

Never found anything that unusual, but did get a Barber Dime in change about three years ago. A common date but interesting nevertheless. Probably a kid spending their parent's collection.

Should have seen the look on her face when she showed it to me...priceless  ;D

Bruse, ya, it's not pretty but what a great find for a 12 year old!  Chip off the old block head  ;)

My thought is that is was washed out of one the old homesteads.  There are many in the area.
