A major bucket lister! Big shiny OLD!

October 30, 2021 09:23PM avatar
At my go-to spot as always, and I’ve trekked very far from the original house site. I stumbled across another wheatie, a nice old flower button, a musket ball, and then I got a screaming 33-34 on the equinox 800. Running it in park 1 mode with the stock coil. I FaceTimed my friend in Ohio, and said “hey listen to this signal!” He replied that it could be a large cent ringing up that high. I said I hope it was a silver half dollar. I dug my target while he watched, and sure enough it was a silver half. I started yelling out in joy, and then I saw lady libertys head and arm and knew I had a seated. My buddy and I were absolutely blown away! I ran half a mile back to my truck, and poured water on her to clean her up. 1861 seated half. She’s been hit by the plow a couple times in her life, but I couldn’t be happier. A silver half was high on my list, and I never expected a seated half!

Maybe it is time to add a gold coin to the bucket list with this luck! 3rd seated coin found this year (1890 from a sidewalk, 1845 half dime from here in the spring), 4th one from my families place. (1866 dime, 1890 dime, 1845 half dime). Really hope there’s some more relics out there!
