    Found a Really interesting 1865 Seated Liberty Half Dollar/ 1901 Morgan Dollar

    Here are my finds from yesterday. My first coin I found yesterday, just about knocked me for a loop. It was a 1865 Seated Half Dollar and on the back of it was a Masonic symbol. Beats me what the heck it is, but I love it. Found it at a one room school house site, that my partner and I have hunted a ton of times. My buddy found a shielded nickel, but lost it somewhere in the field. Guess we will have to find that one after the crops are off this fall.

    We went to another One Room school house that we had hunted many, many times. I found two V-nickels, 1901 & 1910, a Mercury Dime, 1942 D, two wheat pennies, 1912 and 1942, some sort of lead bullet, and a bunch of buttons, one of them being a Eagle button. Kinda of think the Eagle might be a War of 1812, not sure.

    Not to be outdone, my hunting partner pulled out a 1901 Morgan Silver Dollar in really good shape from the last one room school house site!

    The day before I found a arrowhead and a stone knife and a couple of pre-form indian relics. Can't wait for some more rain. It is really dry here in Ohio.

    Here is another example of a site is never hunted out!!

    All of our finds were found using a Minelab X-terra 70, awesome detector.

    Yes I did, I said not to be outdone, my hunting partner found a 1901 Silver Dollar!!
    Yes all finds came from one room school house sites. They were in corn stalks, so they haven't been planted yet.

    I do not believe that would be a love token ... more of a religious token... looks to me to be a Masonic sign etched on the back...

    That Half is incredible!
    I wonder if that was done by a watchmaker.
    Looks like the etching in fancy pocketwatches called damaskeening.
    Despite your votes...Trade Dollars are not banner worthy.
