THIS is one reason why I love vacationing back home in PA so much...

(A two-hour hunt at the former site of an old church from the mid 1800s...now long gone, and nothing but forest; I only dug two keepers the entire hunt, but I sure can't complain!)

Quality not quantity Steve! The half is in excellent shape, what was the date on the largie. That's what I love about hunting in the UK, odds of finding quality go way up.

I keep seeing those half dimes popping up here on the forum maybe that's a sign I'm going to find one probably more like a dream.
That coin is in excellent condition, really nice find, falls into that trophy category.

Only half dime I ever found was literally a half dime . Somehow it was cut or chopped. Very nice finds. I agree quality over quantity . Although a mason jar full of newer coins would work..

Thanks all!

Jeff -- the large cent is 1839, braided-hair variety.

still looking 52 -- thanks! Yep, it's in really nice condition! :)

fwcrawford -- YES, the site has indeed paid off! I found this site through research, about 5 or 6 years ago, and have been there several times. I've not found a ton of coins, but most have been really nice -- a couple of Indians, and then a Seated Dime, two Seated Half Dimes, a Capped Bust Dime, and the Large Cent. Hard to beat that! :) I hope you find yours, soon!

ronaldj2 -- LOL; I have found one or two of those "half dimes" before, also!

earthlypotluck -- THANKS!
