Half with a whole Eagle

August 23, 2020 02:54PM
Well, got up early and thought I'd take a bigger coil to the place where i found the Half Eagle. Lots of swinging with the MX sport, but only a zincoln or two to show.

Swapped out for the 6" concentric, and headed over the bank into the brush. Quickly, i realized this was where old glassware and china had been disposed of. Lots and lots of nails, garbage, various makeup tins...and one iffy signal that i toe scuffed from its resting place. What do you know, a large reeded rim! Saw the eagle on the back and knew I had a Barber half. Front was concreted with iron stuck to it. Hey, ill take it! Rang up below a quarter in my hand due to the iron still on it.

Also found several items, one that id like an ID on. Appears it could be a coin purse/wallet, but not sure it really makes sense. Doesn't appear to be a compact or cigarette holder.

Anywho....not a bad morning!
