Silver from the family land! Plowed field revealed oldest coin!

October 12, 2019 06:08PM avatar
While driving from forest grove I stopped by the homesite to see they had plowed! I had my minelab in the trunk so I hopped out and just started swinging. Within half an hour I found the first coin, a 1960 memorial. A little bummed I kept going forward a few feet and popped out another coin. I thought it was a modern dime but to my surprise it was a 1866 seated dime!! My oldest silver and oldest US coin dug! Can’t believe there was another seated in there, I thought I had pounded this place to death. I was just using the Park1 mode on the Nox800 with the stock coil. 5 tone mode. Rang up loud and clear! Didn’t stay out long but will see what tomorrow brings!
