    Exclamation 1795 Flowing Hair Half Dime! Rare!!!

    11/13/2011 UPDATE: I SOLD THE COIN TODAY! SEE THE LAST REPLIES IN THIS THREAD FOR DETAILS.



    Hello fellow T'Netters! I got out today with my buddy Dale, Jim and his friend Matt. We wanted to check out some woods that were a former farm field. After about an hour with no targets to speak of, we decided to hit another field.

    We spread out across the field, and I worked an area near some trees. I got a somewhat deep signal that turned out to be an old plated ring. It may be an old signet ring, but to be honest I am to consumed with the Half Dime to even look at the ring for now.

    The coin was a deep signal reading 9.5 inches on the V3i, and sounded like what some deep buttons sound like, definitely a signal worth digging. I dug a huge plug, but the coin was still in the hole. I was able to pinpoint it near the bottom of the hole, so I carefully used my Lesche to remove the target along with a nice clump of dirt.

    I saw the silver and a few things went through my mind, one of which was a half reale. When I picked it up I knew immediately this was no half reale. I could clearly see the word LIBERTY. I had to double check to make sure it was not a Seated Liberty. I thought maybe my eyes were playing tricks on me.

    I yelled out to the others so loudly that they knew it had to be something amazing. I had to leave at that point due to some other obligations, but I cannot stop thinking about this find.

    UPDATED PHOTO 3/8/2011

    I took some photos in better lighting today so you can see the detail. Here is the obverse. I had trouble getting sharp focus on the reverse. The camera was not cooperating and I was anxious to get the coin back into its holder.

    I don't know what to say about the flowing haired silvers. Are they not the holy grail of US minted silver? Is this not a Banner find?
