Barber and my first seated half dime!
Quote this message in a reply
Went cellar hole hunting yesterday. I found 4 cellar holes, but the hogweed was way too high to get the coil down. On my way out, I tried my luck along the road going in to the settlement. The barber was just off the gravel road in a bare spot of field. To access the settlement, I had to drive across the salt water bay at low tide. While waiting for the tide to drop, I detected the roadway along the salt shore. Got a weird 04:22 on the Etrac on the surface. I flicked out a small disc, and after it dried, I could see "half dime"! It's in really bad condition as it has been driven over for most of its life. I can't get the camera to capture the date, but it's 1843 P. Thanks for looking!

Terrific finds Relic! Love that half dime! Yes Amazing how some coins are so deep and some are just up on the surface. Even the old ones! Nice hunt! Hope you have great luck on the trips there in the future! Sounds like a honey hole to me!

That's some good detecting Medic. And by the way, good to see you on the boards again. I've always felt you get a bonus with those old coins: not only silver but some history and a beautiful design to look at as well. Hit that spot again: I'm sure you'll be rewarded.
