Adventures of Ike...My pocket piece.

 

Well last month I thought I would start a new journal. ADVENTURES OF IKE!!!!!!! Who is Ike? Well Ike is my 1971 Silver proof Ike dollar. Yes I busted him out of a brown box.....OH NO!!!! I carry it almost everywhere I go so I thought why not document his journey.

 

First adventure was camping/Deer/Dove hunting weekend. After our son crashed out for the night My wife, Ike and I sat around the fire drinking and laughing. Good times.

 

Then at the recent local Reptile show we picked up a red bearded dragon. I was .99 cents short and all I had left was Ike in my pocket......."Do I dare use Ike to finish paying for a Dragon?" lol heck no. Dealer was nice enough to cover the .99 cents so I wouldn't have to spend $4 getting money out of ATM.

 

Lastly Ike and I sat through our yearly TSA training program. Talk about a bore. We had fun until the sound of Ike wobbling on the table echoed throughout the room........ooops.

 

Sadly that was all the note worthy adventures this month. We had a lot more planned but son got sick twice and had to cover for co workers. Oh well.

 

What adventures has your pocket piece been on?

 

Until next month.....

Interesting post!

 

My pocket piece is a 1901-O Morgan Dollar. It belonged to my Grandfather who was a "Dry Goods" salesman in the 1920's and 1930's. He told me he always carried it for good luck. It's roughly a VF grade and is now protected from further wear so it looks exactly as it did when he gave it to me in the early 1960's. I started carrying it in the1980's, and we've gone quite a few places together.

 

Next week, we're off to Qatar for a three week business trip!

IDK coin928 I would feel bad carrying that just incase I lost it. Qatar! Nice. Feel free to take some photos to share.

 

I love my reptiles Gary. Next photo of him and he might be huge. From what I read dragons grow quick.
