Scored an 1856 Half Dime

I detected a spot in Goldsboro, NC a couple days ago. I found an 1856 Half Dime (the 3rd I have ever found), 2 CW bullets, some newer coins and what was probably a token which is all corroded. I can make out three arrows on the bottom, pointing to the right and a wreath heading up the right side. No telling what it was. It has been a while since I have swung the ole Fisher F-75 LTD, so the Half Dime was very welcome. Happy hunting!

It is incredible how small and thin they are. The three-cent piece, of which I have found perhaps 4, is teeny and thin.

Did you find it in some burnt material? It looks pitted and stained like it got very hot.
