    RARE NEW BRUNSWICK SILVER, 1st hunt of season

    First dig of the season, was quite nice at about 50 F.

    Got a copper pretty quick, about an hour later I got a small silver, too much mud on it to know exactly what it was. Later in a mud puddle I discovered it to be a New Brunswick 10 cent silver. Not right up on the prices I did know it was a scarce coin, and I did notice it had a doubled "2" in the date "1862 BTW"

    So, when home I look it up, a lot better than I thought.

    Probably my best first day. Even the crotal bell is a first with the makers initials...S. I. or I. S. anyone ?

    Wow, those are some solid finds! That dime is amazing, I would be thrilled with that one. How deep was it?

    I am so jealous that you can hunt, we have an unreal amount of snow, and it looks like another 15 to 20 cm tonight...

    Hey there Rick you scored a nice one!

    I got a few NB silvers but not like yours, you got the nicer one! I like the patina on yours.

    Everyone should start the year like you

    I had a great time hunting with you yesterday Rick, you definitely got the find of the day. That little coin is a beauty and I would say Banner worthy due to it's condition and rarity.
    You forgot to mention about your eyeball find... We stopped at Timmy's for a coffee before heading out and right a way Rick eyeballs a dime on the ground. It was a good way to kick start the day.
    Anyway, banner vote going in.
