    Unknown 25cent and total 87 for 2 hour back yard hunt

    I was searching my back yard this afternoon with a Bounty Hunter 202 and a Discovery 3 and popped out .87 cents and some trash. Figured I'd post some pics for everyone to see. I can't read the date, but there is an "S" and "M" on the lower front where the date use to be. Acording to Wikipedia, the quarter is a Standing Liberty Quarter Series 2 minted between 1917-1930 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Standing_Liberty_quarter
    Enjoy and feel free to post some comments.
