    My first Seated Quarter! (1853)

    Today had to be my best hunting day ever!

    My friend Jim called this afternoon to tell me that the city had removed another section of sidewalks downtown.
    We had been there yesterday and hunted a small section that had been removed, and the only coin I found was an Indian Head.
    I told him I didn't want to go this evening, to go ahead and hunt without me.
    He kept after me to join him and MrsTimberwolf told that I should go, so I said OK.
    I got off work and before I could get downtown, Jim called to say that there were allready three guys there hunting!
    Jim began hunting and I arrived a few minuets later and got started.
    As it turns out, two of the hunters were club members and the third hunter was their guest.

    I hunted for about an hour and forty-five minutes, finding:

    1 Seated Quarter
    1 Seated Dime
    2 Barber Dimes
    2 V Nickles
    7 Indian Heads
    1 "If You Love Me Grin" pin

    The V Nickles and Indian Heads are in pretty poor condition.
    I'm not sure what the dates are. I will try to clean the coins and post those pics later.

    Here is the area we hunted:

    See, you gotta do what the wife tells you!
    A gentleman farmer named Floyd
    With some of his kin was annoyed
    The boys in their youth
    Did not know the truth
    And one of his tools was destroyed
