    1814 E/A Capped Bust Half Dollar

    Hi All,

    Went out for a short hunt with my kids today. Was using my new T2SE detector which I like a lot. About 15 minutes into the hunt got a decent signal and dug down to dig up the Batmobile, which was a real cool find. It was made by Corgi but don't know the year it was made so if anyone knows that would be cool to hear. Anyways after about a half hour of hunting I got a bouncing signal between 77 up to 95 on the machine. At about 7 inches out came the Half Dollar which was real sweet to find. I told my kids if we don't get anything good for the day, that with that one find we made our day. There was a lot of high fives going on for sure. After that find we dug a few handle parts from old utensils. Just before it was time to go I got a nice 77 signal on the detector. I dug down about 5 inches and out popped the spur which was real cool for sure to find.

    After getting home and cleaning up all the finds. I noticed that the Capped Bust is the E over A variety which was cool. Also I noticed that William Eno signed the front of the coin. He was born in 1800 and lived in the house. Probably value wide it hurt the coin, but I think it is really cool that it was signed by an early occupant of the house. Well thanks for reading and looking.

    What character all your finds have. Love the engraving on the half. Super finds!!!

    What mode do you use the T2se in?
    Stock coil or sniper 4" coil ?

    Any T2 pointers ? I've been using one for about 6 months and I like it a lot.

    Congratulation on a killer hunt.

    Finding a signed coin by the landowner is super! Yeah, not sure what category a signed coin falls into with collectors but that is one nice piece of history, besides being a very early large American silver....

    NGC grading service would put this coin into the Graffiti category. . Personally it is so much more interesting with the land owners name!


    Here is NGC's grading guideline for a coin like yours:

    GRAFFITI describes a coin into which initials or some other writing has been
    scratched or carved. This may be narrowed down to read OBV GRAFFITI or
    REV GRAFFITI.

    "The mantra has always been don't clean a (copper) coin or it will lose value.
    For undug coins this is true. For dug coins this is untrue.
    The value will increase with judicious cleaning."
