In 3 weeks my search continues for a ten-year void.

Yes, three weekends away will be the opening of our WTHO and I am hoping to find a first silver US coin minted from 1840 thru 1849. I found Seated Liberty coins now and then before the summer of 1983 but, as I have related many times, the introduction of the Tesoro Inca that year opened the door and switched me over to Relic Hunting 85% of the time. And doing that, I managed to be fortunate enough to have a special site open up for me, joined by several other ghost towns and such, that produced an abundance of old coins.

I found a Capped Bust Half-Dime, my only one, when hunting with UtahRich, but Seated Liberty silver coins were aplenty. My oldest were 1838 Half-Dimes and Dimes, a couple of Halves from 1869 and 1871, and unbelievable numbers of Dimes (mostly) and Quarters. I typically recovered 30 to 35 Seated Liberties for every 1 Barber!

But with over Thirty-Nine years of avidly working many old ghost towns and other period sites, one silver coin that has evaded me is anything from the 1840's. Just one worthy specimen would make this Outing a rewarding adventure for me.

While my primary Bucket Lister coin is a nice silver Twenty Cent piece, a secondary target on that list is a Seated Liberty from 1840 to 1849. There is a chance to satisfy that wish if I get lucky in Toano, the most likely town to hold such a target.

Do you have any particular targets or dates that are escaping you? Well, think positive, match potential sites, and best of success in your efforts.
