    A Flowing Hair Half Dime!!!!!!

    Had a few hours this afternoon, went back to the early 1800s tavern/hotel site that I have been working with BedfordBob, DeArmittPA, my brother-in-law and my son. But today it was just me, and I thought I was going to get skunked. After an hour and a half there was nothing really decent in my pouch. If you have been following along the last few months, this is the same site in which 9 coppers dating between 1771 and 1807 have been found (plus one 1800 2 Real!), including DeArmitt's banner 1793 Flowing Hair Largie. To date, I personally found two of those coppers, both half cents. So I really was hoping for a Largie (or a pocket spill! ) before I even arrived.

    Well I think I've probably found the best coin that I will find at this site. A 1794 (or 95?) Flowing Hair Half Dime!

    When I first pulled it out of the ground, it was so small and thin that I thought it was a button. It had that tombac button look to it. But then the eagle appeared, and I noticed no shank, and soon enough the outline of the head appeared. And I found a date!!! That shocked me considering how worn this coin is after all of the years.

    I'll also add a picture of a few buttons and other odds and end pieces that were found. Anyone know what the silve/chrome plated thing is? It has a patent date of August 12, 1890, maybe it was hinged on the narrow edge?

    Thanks for looking!

    Man, I'm still spooled up about this one!

    Re: A Flowing Hair Half Dime!!!!!!

    I want to say BANNER that is a rare coin and it's value is probably the cost of an ace 250. Ask me if you find something that could pay for your detector I say that is a banner find. I would be on cloud nine if I would ever find something like this.
    cdltpx is my youtube screen name look there I have lots of favorites on many subjects. I also have a lot of subscribers that I have not thanked a single one of them for subscribing. I figure they subscribed same reason I sub to others to learn from what they find or post.
