Holy sheet :super: a 1835 Capped Bust and a 1844 and 1835-38 in one hole!

Have not posted in a while as I thought well I will just comment and read everyone elses great recoveries.
Although I have been hunting I have not dug any thing super worth mentioning/posting.
Regular old silver be it Barbers or Seated's and old Indians are great and exciting finds but, man its been like a decade since I got my last Capped Bust and that was a 1834 Half Dime.
It had rained the days before pretty decently so, we wanted to take advantage of the moisture conditions,
I picked up my hunting buddy early and we headed to a place we pounded for ten plus years and man has it gave us many rewards ranging from LCs to Seated coins but, today was going to be a whole different story.
The property is large encompassing about three acres and coins have been found everywhere.
Today we focused on an area we have gone over in the past very little and what a good choice it was.
I decided to stay around the oldest trees and strolled near an indentation that was once a large tree.
I hunt in Ferrous tones and got a faint high chirp about top center of the screen that bounced to the right and down a little.
I was not expecting anything like I was about to dig.
I dug down and at about 7" hit a large root and stuck the X1 in and she made some noise. After fighting to get under the root I pulled out a weird looking Token that at first glance I thought was a LC.
I figured that was it as the probe made no more distinct high tones and filled in the hole and covered it up and kept circling the area. Low and behold I get back around and went back over it with my coil and heard a chirp high tone.
I stood there wondering if I had just heard another coin in the same dang hole.
I decided to go back into it and dug a little deeper and at about 10" off to the right and down a tad more I pulled out another large copper. I thought for sure this was a LC. I went and got my hunting partner and showed him.
We looked closer and could see it was a early Canadian 1/2 penny Bank Token.
He said where you find that one and I chuckled and said in the same dang hole where the other came from. He said awesome and said lets take a look.
He came over and sat down as I showed him. I rechecked the hole again this time with the probe. Sure enough more high tone. A little more dirt extracted from the hole and we see silver.
He said you got a seated and as we turned it over we saw the bust. It was an 1835 Capped Bust Dime.
Here are the site pictures of the coins dig.


Here are some pictures of the coins washed off and I must say the 35 is in great shape..

I also must note my buddy who was hunting quite a bit further away was able to pull two nice Mercs a 25 and 39.

What an amazing day to get three early 1800s coins/tokens out of one hole. Turns out the Canadian Agriculture and Commerce Token was only minted 1835-1838 and is a pretty decent find. The other Canadian coin (Bank Token) is dated 1844.
Wonder how those three all oddly ended up being together. Pocket spill maybe but, I guess more then likely the three where buried by a small child back in the mid 1800s.
Definitely an exciting early morning hunt to say the least. :thumbup:
Thanks for looking and Happy Hunting all. :cheers:

That's a tough one to beat !! lol
Capped has been at the top of my wish list for years and they keep eluding me.
I find occasional seated or reales but I have yet to nail a capped.

Fear is paralyzing and courage is liberating. No matter what is put in front of you, there is always a way to make it work.

Dreams are just dreams, goals are dreams with deadlines. The desire to succeed comes from within. Stay focused on your goals, and if people say that you can’t do something, get them out of your life and move on.
