    Best hunt in weeks in the seated field

    Took off work today to get my boat in the water but spent most of the day detecting This morning I went to the field and got a few indians in the hot spot. I spent a decent amount of time in another part of the field were a house once stood. I got some early wheats and the really cool 1920 Virginia chauffeur license

    In the afternoon I went back to the hot spot and got a fatty indian, another indian that I lost and toasty shield and v nickels. Just before dark I got a faint whisper on the Deus. Must have been on edge because just a few inches down was silver #20 and seated #17 from here. Its probably the best looking seated dime to come from here. It kinda looks like a mint mark on the back but It may just be a scratch. I hadnt found a seated from here in weeks.

    Thanks. I got the 3 cent silver last hunt but had not gotten a seated for two or three weeks. The 1893 is the license number. The date is above it

    Thanks. Are these badges rare or collectable?

    They are "highly collectible" (Stealth Diggers reference... lol)

    but seriously, they can fetch a pretty penny to some collectors.

    I'm guessing it's a fairly small collector pool....but like most collectables it's dependent upon year, state, style and design

    Yours has a lot going for it as its a really nice looking design and fairly early. There's a site that shows every single years badge design.

    Its weird because there is something where the mint mark would be but it appears to just be a block and possible mint error. It does not look like damage to me
