    I have a counter stamped large cent somewhere in my house but, for the life of me, I can't find it. At least I have pictures. What I thought interesting about it was that the initials stamped into it are the same as my first and second ones.

    Yes I have misplaced a relic. I can't find my wife. :ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO: Well she is 28 days older than I am. I sure hope you find it. I have a whole lot of pictures I had a year ago and cannot come up with them. Frustrating.

    Nice one, more than likely a merchant stamped that coin. Don’t know why he would change a coin to a store token if he did.

    Nice looking coin FF1. Here's hoping you can come up with it. It will most likely turn up when and from where you least expect it too. I hope so. The only thing I can remember misplacing relic wise ( and I have never found it ) was a small flat cast Iron lock that had a horses head cast onto the front of the lock. I dug this years ago back in the early 80's at the base of a huge oak tree that was supposed to be the site of a blacksmith shop years ago. It was really a neat looking piece and I would have liked to have been able to give it to my daughter since she loves horses. I have looked and looked for this through the years and I can't imagine what became of it. Maybe one day we'll both come across these pieces again. We'll just have to keep our fingers crossed.

    I too have missed placed a few relics. I found a button or pin that had what looked like two crossed pipes on it . .Found it in Maryland at a place that was supposed to have been a muster camp for civil war troops. No idea what I did with it.

    Oh, I rub it in for 28 days every year and twice as much on the new decade years. I love living on the edge. :LOL:

    We could Awl write a country song entitled "We've lost relics in strange places". Sung to the tune of "I've got friends in low places" Lol ;) Maybe one day we can once again come across and find these lost relics.

    Well, I moved into this old house in July of 2017. The only reason I can't find some relics is because I have not finished unpacking?? lol:rolleyes::rolleyes:
