What an amazing way to break into the 1800's with a seated half!! That is one beautiful coin.
I guess the detecting hook is now set!
I wonder how a New Orleans mint coin got up to WV before the civil war?

Thank you, i had no idea it was even going to be a coin it was raining and i had a bag over the 250 so i was just going by sound, i had been digging trash all day. I first thought it was a telephone pole tag or a cow ear tag, but then i saw the date and the seated Liberty, then holycrap a Seated liberty half!
