The EQ2 6 inch coil finds a masked seated liberty ...143 years old

The coin was masked on the east side by half of a large nail...very rusty and flaking rust in my hand as I pulled it out of the hole.
My partner actually pulled the dime from the dirt as I was still after the nail with my pinpointer...he said dime...I keep digging...he said seated....I said , Yeah right....
But did my expression change when I saw it.....no dancing or hollering here....just amazed at a seated coin where it should have been a barber at this campgrounds.
First seated here and a 1877 cc mint mark. We found many coins that came in clearer and were what we called digable then when we used the larger coils and we used
a lot of them here...sef 12x10, 6x8 sef, ultimate 13, pro 11, 15x12 sef, tornado.....and still the little 6 inch EQ2 pulls a seated from amongst the worked out church campgrounds.
Oh..... and I also got an 1882 ih in the same area as the seated dime. Not a bunch of coins...and fresh dug holes were evident here again so we did ok .
1st pic is the lady and what has kept it in the ground for all these years....143 years old ! AND YES I WAS USING THE VERY SUCCESSFUL 110 PATTERN.
