    I hate dealing with things I know nothing about, because so many get taken by untrustworthy people these days. I sure don't want to find out after-the-fact. They should be worth more than wt in silver and gold, and it is up to me to find out....;)

    You might have to pay a coin appraiser. Or take to a pawn shop for valuation.

    Just dispatched a dang possum by the bird yard...in broad daylight, small male....;)
    I did find out where the coins were purchased from, so going to find out if they buy back what they sold....and go from there. I have a few to get another vehicle with, so going to try and get what I can for them. :)

    Since it was Fri and we try to avoid going to town on the wknds, we went to town today. We stopped by the Co-Op and while Joyce got some cabbage plants.... IMAG1687.jpg she set them out this evening, I was picking up some fence harware....they had just gotten in some 5/8"x8" hinge bolts, so got 10 of them for the gates, found some dbl latch gate latches and picked up 2 of them, and got 2 4' gates too.... IMAG1688.jpg IMAG1686.jpg I checked out the 4' gate openings with a gate, and with the width of the hardware, I only have to adjust one hole to accomodate it. Also, I found out that the Co-Op does deliver for $20, so will get them to bring out the other stuff. :)
    I will be getting out tomorrow and begin setting the posts, and have to work in pen Cleaning for the birds area too. Sunday is going to be Hoof day and raking their pen too. I'm going to order a load of sand next wk, and make the ducks a Beach. We have to get things rearrange at the house too. So much to do, but it beats sitting around playing computer games all day...:)

    We have to be doing something but we have gotten like some others on here. We will work till we show the affect and then do something off the farm if there is something to see. Lately it has been farm auctions like I said in our thread. There is one tomorrow that has several things I'm interested in including some commercial wood working tools and lumber. They also have some Golden Comet hens but we don't want a hybrid. That chicken must be an Amish favorite since they have been at the last 3 auctions we have gone to.

    I wouldn't mind going to some auctions around here, but will have to check to find out where to look for info after I finish the fence. I've never been to one, so would like the experience.

    We got started when we went to the first one and registered our info in order to bid. They automatically put you on their mailing for any follow-ons the same area.

    We also checked web sites for auction companies and they usually have a breakdown of coming events and usually a list of items for sale. The Amish auctions have had the most of things we are interested in.

    Thanks for the info, there are a couple of offices in town, I'll have to stop by one day and see about it. The stock auction is every thursday in town and I've never been to one of those either, would like to just go watch.
