Finally! First Barber.
Quote this message in a reply
I left work a bit early today and hit an old park in Salt Lake.  This park has been hunted almost to extinction.  But the weather was nice so I went.  I ran into an old timer who had detected there in the 70's.  I didn't think I'd get that elusive Barber and neither did he.  I was swinging around the massive oak tree's and heard the smallest hint of a good signal (you know the tones I'm talking about).   I really didn't think much of it so I kept going.  I thought about the signal for another 10 minutes and decided to go back.  I swung over it and there it was, the slightest high tone, but it stuck.  I dug down about 10 inches and couldn't find it with my pro-pointer.  So I widened the hole a bit and started scooping out dirt by hand.  Out flopped an 1898 Barber!  I know it's not much but, when you haven't dug one then it is.

Thanks!  I have found many silvers and I also found a US gold dollar. Strange that this is the first Barber?

Great find. I know how you feel. I just recently found my first Barber too. It was also in a very well hunted park.
