    Many years at it and a few seated dimes, but can't beg, borrow, or steal a half dime. Congrats on a killer coin my friend.

    What a great find, amazing it came out of the ground in that shape. I'm going to have to buy that smaller coil and try some of those spots that I found my silver at. I have been thinking about doing that, now after reading your story I'm going to splurge and buy that 5 X 8 coil. Thanks for sharing, if it works out for me I'll let you know.
    I love this hobby so much, now I'm a coin licker!

    treblehunter, you absolutely have to! i have gone back to almost all of my sites with the 5x8 and have been amazed at what i have found. in one place, i literally pulled 20 more coins out of a 8x3 foot space that i thought was all trash. nope, it was just that all the trash was hiding all the coins. and the sites dont have to be all trashy for the coil to snipe them out. let me know if it works for you!

    I've found seated dimes, quarters and even a half dollar, but never a seated half dime. Nice find!

    well, i count myself very fortunate to have found it. i knew it was harder to find. heck, it's just so dang small, i thought it was a child's button. so, easy to miss. but i dont think i realized just how rare they are in terms of metal detecting finds.
