    Sweet coin! Anymore to the story? Did you do alot of research to find the location? Had you been there before? Is it a favorite spot? How deep? Find anything else there? Etc.

    ----------------------------------------- ---------------------------------------

    The coin was found in Upstate NY, on private land that was once a large farm dating back to the early 1800's. The home is long gone but through diligent research and numerous relics and coins I'm pretty sure I've located the yard where the house once stood. From this area i've dug an 1827 Large cent, 1868 2 cent piece, 5 indian head pennies, and a good dozen and half wheaties. Lately though, i hadn't been finding much of anything. So, feeling that i might have "cleaned" this area, i decided to move into the wooded areas surrounding the house. These woods would have been the farmers fields way back then. I knew the signals would be fewer and far between back there, but i also figured there would be a better chance at less garbage to dig. Well i was right, the signals were few and far between. For a good hour i heard not the slightest peep out of my detector, and then PING! PING! PING! I gotta admit, it was such a solid ring that i thought for sure it was something large like an aluminum can, but the ACE 250 insisted it was a half dollar. The Ace has lied to me about every other half dollar signal. So i really was expecting a can. To my amazement though, in a hole no deeper than 4 inches there she layed. Ya know, this is an incredible find but ya want here something even crazier about finding this coin? It is my first silver coin! Honest to god, i've never found even a rosie dime. On the other hand, i by no means call myself "lucky". I spend just as much time at the library as i do in the field...and i don't give up. Neither should you...happy hunting fellas. Oh and just for the record, i didn't find this today...it was a week ago. I signed up today and this is my first post because i HAD TO share this find with you guys. It would be down right selfish not to. This is the kind of find that keeps us ALL out there digging, not just me.

    @testing123 No man, that's the reason i chose to send it to Heritage. They will take care of all that for me. ANACS would have been the cheapest route to get it authenticated but why bother when my intention was to sell it. I've had an authorized PCGS agent offer me 5 grand for it...that's all the authentication i need. If it's fake, Heritage will just refuse it. No money spent!

    @DPBOB: The agent at Heritage suggested That the upcoming Coin show in Philadelphia in August would be a good venue to sell it. he hasn't even got the coin yet though, i just mailed it today. So i really don't know how long they will take to possibly send it to NCS for preservation and then off to PCGS for grading. Unfortunately, from what i've read "dug" coins are raely actually given a grade. Instead they give a details grade only and an explanation why. Example: My coin will likely be something like "XF" details with "Environmental damage".

    Hmmm...that just doesn't make much sense to me. But hey, i don't care man. I didn't post this seeking "banner"...hell, i didn't even know what it was. I just wanted to share a really rare find with people that share this hobby/passion.

    5 grand seems like a low ball offer to me. the coin is in nice condition in spite of the obvious toning. my estimate is that it should be worth at least 10-12 grand

    Great coin and a great find, not taking anything away from it at all, but as you say it is also a find you made before you join TreasureNet...
