Thanks piedmont! Keep searching you will find one . It was many years before I found my first old copper and that was the coin I want it to find most .A buddy of mine once ask me while we were hunting a field in Saratoga, " what are you thinking of?" I think I replied that I was thinking of fishing or school or something else. He replied that I needed to focus on what I wanted to find and picture in my mind. I did and found my first old copper there was no date on it but he said it was probably from the 1700s. I think a lot of the big silver like the half dollars in dollars are in out-of-the-way places. The home I have hunted twice dates back to 1802 and I had found no silver at all which led me to believe that someone has already detected it. Based on this I went in the woods and that's where I found the big silver.

Nice finds! My first two silver coins were Walkers. The first was at the base of a giant tree in Madison. And I found it with my Vibratector (small vibrating detector for snorkeling). The second was on the beach in Bolivia’s CA.

My favorite relic is the flat button. It seems to be fairly rare to find one with that much embellishment. Did you find the half dollar in a burnt area? Lots of black crusty stuff. If so, that's a great place to concentrate on.

Yes a silver half is always pleasant to find. Looks like you were hunting some old ground. Old Ground plus expertise = Goodies



Life Goes By Fast, that's why
It's a common mistake to think "I will do it tomorrow"

Thanks and that is awesome Zac you set the bar pretty high right off the bat. I got two Walkers and one seated 1875. I sold a lot of my coins when I was in college so it's nice to start replenishing them.
