Still having trouble finding words... Going to leave the cleaning to a pro. 1900's site that had been torn down. Going to try to calm down and send a write up to Western Eastern.

Racer2 with small coil.

To give a little more of the story, there were 4 of us at the site. Huge lot with a bunch of fill dirt, power lines, and not many old coins we were about to bag it when i got a merc and rosie. That brought us all into a smaller area which still only coughed up a few more keepers.

Lisa, being the meticulous hunter she is, took her Racer to the fence line and worked it slow. It was obvious she had dug a good one and all she could say was "Ive never found one before".

Congrats babe on a lifetime find!

The coin was on edge in the ground and was a bouncy 58-60. Once out in the air, it was a dead on 60.
