Big Silver and Big Surprise

So I was detecting in a yard I have many times before. Records show 1900 as the year the house was built but I believe due to a fire years ago that burnt many of the town records that the records are not correct. I have found coins ranging from barber dime to wheaties to buffalo nickles but never expected this to come out. 1831 Capped Bust half dollar in excellent condition. Still in shock. Thanks for looking, HH

What a spectacular find!

MKUS is right ... that was a week's pay for somebody. They must have spent a lot of time looking to try to find it.

Cheers,

Joe

:surprised: What a beautiful coin! Congratulations on a super nice find!!



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.

Thanks for all the great comments. I'm still in shock. But it gets better...went back to same yard Sunday and found my first seated dime, 1876. 2 bucket listers in same yard in a week. I better enjoy it because it may be a while before it happens again.
