    2nd Indian Head in as many days

    ZDD & Me...

    Had a plan, and it was a good one, but it didn't work out so we went free-styling.

    The first spot we went Dave got find of the day with a scarce Dime. I guess that is where I got the token too.
    Next place was trash on trash with mostly no good signals, was about to say "NEXT" when I popped out an indian head cent, 1889, coincidence...I found one yesterday solo hunt, with the same date. No big deal for many, but I'm not in the US, and only get a couple / few of these per year.

    Anyway ended up with,

    DINKY wheelbarrow (cool but a little broke)
    2 CAN. cents
    1816 Brock hp token
    1889 IH cent
    tiny ball button.

    Was a great day in the out-of-doors, above ground, and digging in it.
    Last pic is what the token should like. believe it or not this is better than one other I have like it.

    Nice finds! Congrats!

    I'm in the US and I haven't dug one yet! Guess it's all about location.

    Yep, not too many Indian heads to be found at many of our sites here either

    If you recall, last fall I found two ihs in the same hunt, from two different sites, first time that has ever happened in over twenty years of detecting, shows ya how few made it to our fields

    Always great to find a new site
    ...if you think I'm a pain in the neck, it's lower, lower,little bit lower, too low, higher, there ya go.....

    Nice finds bud. For some reason most of the ih's I find seem to clean up pretty well, as opposed to a large cent. I found one recently that was completely encased in crust and sure enough there was a nice looking coin under there

    I'm guessing not too common a find around here, just checked it is the only "upper canada" token I got. Like to find the "NO LABOUR NO BREAD", and the LESSLIE 1822 2 pence.

    That makes perfect sense, the IH's being better condition on average than LC's, I would guess it is mainly because of being in the ground for less time.

    I don't have all that many of them, but pretty much all have some degree of corrosion, A couple of the newer ones are not too bad. Funny that I have got a first and last year of issue, the 1859 is very toast, and holed, the 1908 is probably the best condition.
