    Third Coin at Antietam......Back to Back .....1861 Seated Half Dime.....

    Unbelievable Folk's.....Last weekend I found an 1833 Capped Bust Half Dime from my field's at Sharpsburg,today I was feeling a little sick (cough,cough) and deciced to go to the freshly cut Cornfield that's given up some excellent find's in the past.....From this particular field I managed a pack stud,a pack "triangle" and three "buck's".....Not too shabby.....Went back to the truck to "refresh" and decided to hit another field,didn't take me 5 min.'s and 3 hit's to come across a solid +78,first thing that came to my mind was "beer can".....Not So!!!!!...It might be Mangled but it's mine The bottom half of the reverse is black.....But again,It's Mine.....Unbelievable.Thank's Everyone....

    what makes these coins so much cooler than just a normal half dime, is the fact that beyond the shadow of a doubt, these coins were lost by someone who witnessed and participated in the bloodiest day of the war. it really is remarkable! makes you wonder about the guy who lost them doesnt it?

    Where are the Mercs and Rosies, Civil? You're slacking!!

    Seriously, any seated is a great find no matter the condition! I would love to find seated coins, but my areas are too modern to produce that type of coin.

    Congrats!! Let's see you do it again!

    ALRIGHT JOE!! You've really started to rack up, up there! You must've hit a honey hole spot because the last month or so you've had some very quality finds! Thats a NICE ONE bud How deep was it? Where'd you find it, in the woods or a field?
