Beautiful coin. Sad for the dings.
Great new location.
Enjoy
Thanks. Yeah the damage stinks but this is actually the first Seated half dime that I've found that's not been holed. The first one I found was holed and has the letter A carved into it. Adds to the story behind the find I guess.

Thanks Mike! I with you on it being dropped by a soldier. I found one of my favorite Civil War relics just about 200 yards across the street from here. It's a game die made from a bullet.

Did you know you pitched your tent over a chest of gold. 😁 Like the old gold mining towns.
Built their town over the richest veins.😊

Or, like in Paint Your Wagon, I could dig a tunnel under the saloon floor and just sweep up the gold dust!!! I like the saloon idea myself…….😂😂

I hit a fresh construction site where they just cleared off a section of woods. This area is known to have some major Civil War camps all around. The place is really trashy but to my surprise the first good target I got was a tiny silver coin. After a little splash of water I could see I had dug an 1859 O Seated Half Dime. I couldn't have asked for a better start to a new site. The coin has great details but has been damaged from the heavy equipment. I found a few bullets and my last target was a nice piece of an iron spur. I'm happy to save a few more relics from the dozer and I am waiting for them to clear of some more areas to hunt.

Heck of a keeper! All day everyday, the coin has the look, along with character. Thanks for sharing.
