    Neil, that is the kind of coin we all dream about. I know you said it read at 9-1/2",

    was that the actual depth? I would have probably missed it if it was.

    This is the best hobby in the world. Congratulations on the banner and you

    know you will make the best finds issue of the magazine.

    Congratulations on all of it again, I can't quit looking at it.

    It is hard to know for sure what the actual depth was. As far as my detecting style goes, there are only two depths, shallow and deep. This one was very deep. To further complicate things, I use an SEF 10X12 coil, which distorts the depth info on the White's detectors. I can estimate it, however, based on the length of my Garrett Propointer, and would say that the 9.5" is pretty close.

    I think you might have mixed up the numbers on your VF's and EF's, but I agree this coin has EF details. I'm not particularly strong at grading Early American but having looked at plenty that were professionally graded, once you see past the surface, the details are probably in the EF range (and the grading houses tend to be a bit more forgiving with them than they are with later stuff). That coin wasn't circulated much before it found a peaceful and undisturbed place in the earth for 200+ years

    It does kind of give one pause when we think about how hasty we can sometimes be in digging targets. One careless jab from the Lesche here and... well... lets not even think about that.

    Thanks LS Morgan. Usually I don't make mistakes like that. Must have been as excited as Neil!
    Don in SJ has been in contact with an early US silver expert, forwarding some high res photos of the coin to him, and here is his opinion:

    It looks to be in extremely good shape having been in the ground for such a long time. It appears to be at least AU, although it is difficult to grade any coin from a picture.

    Needless to say I am a happy camper!

    It is hard to say, as there are many variables, but I would estimate it to be in the $5K range give or take $2K.

    If it is AU, you're in some rarefied territory.
    I don't know what the population report is on those, but it wouldn't be too shocking to find that there aren't but a handful of examples in that grade territory.

    Keep your fingers crossed for AU. As you know, a slight difference in grade with Early American coinage can make for a staggering difference in value.

    Again, congrats. Amazing find.
