    "off the beaten path" with TNT2000 nets one of my best finds!

    Hi everyone,
    I managed to sneak a couple more wheats (1909 and 1919) & IH's (1882, 1884, and two 1892) out of our little honey hole last week. So TnT2000 and I decided to meet Friday after work. We went right back to where I left off and bam, TnT snags an IH. About ten minutes later I got a pulltab signal. I kicked aside the leaves and an 1/8" of soil and the signal was gone. I saw what I thought was piece of a pull tab in the clump of leaves. Good thing I picked it up. Out pops an 1856 silver three center!!!! Man that sucker is little!
    What's funny is TnT has found two this year and I just asked him minutes earlier what reading they give on his machine. He said one was a def. silver and one was jumping around a bit.
    The date is a little worn, and the coin a little bent, but I am pumped about the find. I ended up finding two more IH's (a nice 1879 and 1881).
    We are hunting a wooded area next to some farm fields. We keep pounding this area and as TnT says "we always squeak out something"!
    Thanks for reading and thanks again to TnT, because he origionally found this area!

    Very cool coin, any idea on the pin/medallion with the woman on it ??
    I noticed that no-one really utilizes all the signature space provided, so I figured to be REALLY original I would make up the longest signature that I could and probably just leave it as one big run on sentence because all that punctuation just takes up way too much space-HH.

    Re: "off the beaten path" with TNT2000 nets one of my best finds!

    So that little sucker lay under a thin soil layer with leaves on top of that?
    How in the world was it so shallow if the current crop of leaves would have added another 1/16" or so once decomposed?
    Makes me wonder about coin density/soil density/coin sinkage/soil addage, etc as far as how deep coins are based on the above. I have read here on TN and elsewhere of 1800's coins laying on the surface in wooded areas.
    I have found a couple silver laying on the surface, but they were no older than the 50's.

    Great find...that's a cool looking coin for a US coin...almost looks foreign on the obverse.

    That's a real nice Trime you found. I found an 1852 earlier this year, but yours is in nicer shape. Way to go!

    Congrats on the 3 center.

    They are so small. I found one about 2 yrs ago. It was a 1851. It was bent and worn down to. I couldn't get over how small they are. I found it in clay at 5 inches reading a plus 44 46 on the dfx.
