I just came back from the Harrisburg coin show and looks like we are headed back to PAN this month! Pat McBride from PAN was at show as the famous founding father, Ben
Franklin, and he fits into the garb and the part perfectly. Very convincing!
Also at the Show was a metal detectorist (and detector salesman) by the name of "A. Blessing" - nice. Anyway, his finds were legend and he had many a colonial copper
and some "chopped" coins -- including a US silver three-center that was cut in half.... so somebody made 1 1/2 cents in change. I had never seen that before......
Rick kindly provided these photos. Thanks! -Editor
