    My oldest coin, 150 YEAR OLD IH FATTY

    I've been hunting this local Park near my home for a few weeks now and yesterday I found my oldest coin. it's an 1862 Indianhead fatty! This park goes back into the early 1800s and has been detected by many hunters. I'm very happy to have found this IH. I'm sorry these pics aren't the greatest and I did include a pic of a nice 925 sterling Jack O lantern charm (3.5g) that I found 19 days earlier near the ball field. Old and new, these are 2 of my favorite recent finds. The IH is 150 YEARS OLD and is now my oldest coin found with my Fisher 1236X2.
