Another nice report on a weekend outing.

September 05, 2018 06:58AM avatar
Other than the damage, the Barber Dime has very nice detail, but as always, we take them as we find them. Congrats to Sid, too, both for getting a nice "1st coin" with a new detector, and for pulling the 2nd oldest coin out of that townsite that I know of in the past three years. The oldest was an 1854 Large Cent found on our 2015 WTHO there, and I believe that was a bucket lister for James, too.

I enjoy ghost town hunting, as you well know, because there is always a good potential to make a decent recovery or two, but that is also met by the 'should-have-been' / 'could-have-been' signals we get from the challenging trash as shown in your last photo.

Glad to see you had some success .... and had fun as well.
