    "Back to 1819 School " .. Twenty Cent Piece !!!

    Sat mourning ; 5-8-10 hunt in the field was different , usually bugs drive me out of there , but today ,50 mph wind gusts made the fields I have been hunting , a dust bowl . I decided to go back to the school where I found some nice coppers and silver , years ago . Built in the 1800's & used to 1959, this old school , could provide some nice coins and relics ,but it has been pounded by many hunters since the 70's. Anything found today would be deep or in areas away from the building . Lots of new litter type junk & hot rock coal pieces , mask any deep coins .After a bunch of those zinckers and pull tabs , deep hit ... an Indian 8) 1875 ! Nice patina and in fine condition . Moved away from the building into the yard hoping to find more 125 year old lunch money. Dug some more junk and found where more coal was dumped .. hot rock city . Moved near the woods "see pic " ..Indian 1876 . More wheats 1920 ,1957 , ,50 ,then a dateless toasted clad . Would this be a 1877 IH day 1966 dime , then a silver near where the out houses , were once standing. Seated quarter . Surrounding the silver, was a bunch of rusted crap and wild rose bushes nearby..the thorns on these things can rip flesh ,which possibly kept most away . . The winds were getting crazy "40-50 mph gusts", so I left, . ..Later I am cleaning up the finds . The quartersize coin and it turns out to be different real different ..it's a twenty cent piece!!!!! 1875 S The first I have ever seen ,let alone dug . Beautiful , condition ..sorry I can't get a clear shot of the mintmark S ..it is located above the letter Y in Twenty .. Lesson learned ,a site is never picked cleaned and dig the faint sounds . It may be the 1877 that is still out there Thanks for stopping in , CMDdawg

    Heck, a twenty cent piece is much rarer to come a cross than any of the other coinage shown here, so it seems! First one I've seen here, anyway. Nice find. I'm sure a lotof people have that on their lists.

    8) I was more concerned with the 1870's Indian Heads that were popping up ..esp. finding a 1877 .. I wrapped it up in my pouch without even looking at the reverse , i thought it was a quarter ,shouldn,t have cleaned the crud off, huh

    This US 20-cent piece is certainly worthy of the banner. Issued for only four years and two of those years were proofs-only, the historic value of this coin and its rarity to find deserve the banner.
    Great find!!
