    Tonight another James I penny. That's two identical coins from the same field. Somebody had holes in their pockets in 1610. Notice the Scottish thistle on one side below a crown and an English rose on the other indicating the Union of Crowns of Scotland and England that happened in 1603 with the death of Elizabeth I

    When I was a kid my parents wanted me to pull weeds and cut back the bushes. They demonstrated how you could find coins that people dropped in the yard over the years as they showed me how to run the hoe and sheers. I was impressed. I made about $5 in coins that day and the yard work was pristine.

    I’m still a bit irritated it took me so long to figure out the ruse.

    haha that's priceless! I wish I had thought of that years ago when my two were young.

    Maybe that's what happened in 1610?
