Color me impressed....and a bit jelous!

Jadon/Chris - really, really impressive here on the West Coast. While i know there are few Seated halves out here in the wild, I wasn't sure we'd ever see Spanish silver in the PNW given the prominence of seated coins by the time settlement started in ~1845.

Happy for you...and it a nice little bit of adrenaline to get us all out there! Both are still on my bucket list...and i can only hope it happens one day.

What i find most interesting is what was going on at your family farm in 1850/60. I know some of the history of some of the adjacent properties in terms of settlement, but makes you wonder if there was a trading post/store on your farm....or whether it was just a local farm that had money changing hands at harvest. Given the number of find from the 1800s, something more than clothesline drops was going on.

Way to save some history and get some great conversation pieces! Enjoy the moment (as you know, it can be many years in between such finds!).
