    What sort of spot did you find it? Park? School? Open land? Did you do some research to know that was a good spot to go?
    Hi Jeff. Yes, I've been researching my town and county since I was a young man. But in late 2017, I happened upon an old map of our town which showed the area had been a city park in 1930. After some more checking, I found that the field where I later found the half was still owned by the City so my detecting buddy and I were allowed to search it. We detected the area a couple of times before I found it. The time before, he found an 1898? Indian Head cent about ten yards from where I later found the Barber half. His coin was only about 4" deep while mine was about 9". We also found pounds of iron and brass horse tack and other very old unidentified iron objects in the field. We still haven't learned why there was so much of that in the small field. Here's a photo of a small portion of the horse tack etc. that we found there.

    [QUOTE=Rings&bling;6032496]I am replying to this late, but what was the VDI number on the silver half? Do you remember? I am still learning my Garrett ACE 400, and just now starting to listen fairly well to what it is telling me.[/QUO

    Hi. The Ace 250, unlike your Ace 400, does not have VDI numbers. It has symbols instead. The Barber half registered fairly solidly on the half dollar symbol but occasionally would flicker to the dime symbol. Since it pretty well locked into the half range, I knew I had to dig it and I'm glad I did.

    I'm sure not an expert on minerals or rocks but I'd suggest contacting the Geology Department at your local college or university. I believe they would be happy to help you. Here's an online guide that I found that may give you some information.
