    Best Coin Find this summer

    I found this beauty of a coin under an old sidewalk in Sacramento while digging for bottles.....it was so clean and seemed like only lost yesterday not 150 years ago.

    One of my favorites.

    Fantastic coin! I'm still waiting to find my own pre-1900's silver...
    Thanks for sharing!

    Nice Doug. If it was under the sidewalk that explains it being sheltered all those years

    She is a sweet looking lady for being 150.
    I don't suffer from insanity. I enjoy every minute of it.
