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.

Thanks Monte,

I am slowly getting more comfortable out in the ghost town's. Having appropriate detectors makes things much easier. Now what to do about that rusty tin?

I was hoping to find something from an earlier time period myself, but . . . . I am pleased to have found the Barber dime. I think Gregg's 1853 Quarter took Oldest Coin Honors for our outing followed by the Flying Eagle Cent and the two IHC's. The trade token and Southern Pacific padlock were also nice finds. All in all, a fun time.
