    Seated Half - Seated dime - 1867 shield nickel sandwich!

    I went for a hunt today, and wandered over to the "new" section where I hadn't hunted much. Glad I did

    I got a choppy high signal on my CTX at a very shallow depth 3". Thought it was a shoddy clad schwag quarter, but when I dug in I couldn't find the darn thing. Rescan and it's still there. Finally at 7" down I see a coin pile and thought clad again.Click image for larger version.

    Thx Evo. The coins were welded together with 130 years of corrosion. I had to pry them apart. An absolutely fun find for me.

    Thanks Abe. All I wanted to find here was a seated dime. After finding that plus a half at once is more than I could ever ask. Crazy hobby we had huh?!
