What does surfing and metal
detecting have in common? Both
want to know what the conditions of
the waves will be by using wind
charts, tide charts, webcam and other
sites from the internet. Come to our
meeting this Thursday and learn
from an avid long time surfer and
beach conservationist expert, Tom
Warnke. By using various tools
available on the internet - a
detectorist can increase their chances
of predicting the probability of beach

The 1916 Quarter…One Titillating Coin!
Back in 1915, shortly after World War 1 began, the US mint
invited well known sculptors to submit designs for a new
quarter, one to replace the Barber. The winner, Herman A.
McNeil, served up Miss Liberty in 1916, holding an olive
branch in her right hand, a shield in her left and in the
middle….a bare breast!
Mystery surrounds the reason for choosing this design,
especially given the titillating obverse. Typically the olive
branch represented peace, the shield warfare and defense, but a
bare breast? What were they thinking?
KEEP IN OUR THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS
Steve Hamedl is on the mend after injuring his ribs,
forearm and a shin. While trying to get off a boat, he fell
backwards and smashed his ribs against the boat ladder; so
hard that he broke the ladder.
MAY CLUB HUNT
The sexy 1916 Standing Liberty and
the more modest 1917
Anyway when these quarters were released to the
public in January of 1917, religious leaders called them
obscene, filthy and many conservative organizations
demanded that the Mint recall them. The Mint succumbed
to the pressure and the coin disappeared from circulation,
much to the dismay of Mr. McNeil. He was forced to
redesign Lady Liberty, and rather than simply pull the
drape over her breast he added a suit of armor up to her
neck to show his indignation.
Only fifty two thousand 1916 quarters were produced
(Philadelphia mint only) and today they demand top dollar
in pretty much any condition.
Now I don’t know about you but I think we should
demand a little more feminism from the mint today. Our
current coinage is dull and boring and I am just a
little tired of Abe, George and Franklin D. All great
presidents for sure but hey let’s bring back the gals and
add a little pizzazz! The Seated, Standing & Walking
Liberty coins, the Mercury dime and large cents…classic
designs and all women!.
Twelve members met at 8am for a wild hunt at Carlin
Park in Jupiter on June May 18. Gail found the planted
item - a Spanish gold coin replica - which was worth a
paid breakfast following the club hunt at a local
establishment in Jupiter.
If you agree with me contact the United States Mint and let
them know we’d like to see a gal or two in the future, and if
they can’t offer a bare breast tell them we’d be happy with a
little bit of cleavage
