    My first barber, and my oldest coin.

    I decided to go out last night after work. I hit a park that has been yielding me a lot of silver for no apparent reason. About three minutes in (no exaggeration), I dig my first hole. I was slightly hesitant, as the signal was not as solid as I normally like. Anyway, I cut the plug and about four inches down laid this beaut. It's pretty worn, but if I can see the date I am a happy man. Click image for larger version.

    Minnesota is not the best state for detecting, but with some work and time, we too can find some awesome stuff. Just maybe not the real old stuff.
    For any other Minnesotan diggers, I suggest using this site https://www.lib.umn.edu/apps/mhapo/ in tandem with google maps.
