    Oldest coin to date!

    Hey all!
    Went out on my VERY FIRST field hunt. I have always only done standing homesteads or standing buildings. My whole world was opened. I've had access, sole access, to 45 acres where there were once at least 3 homesteads up until 1920. Then it was all turned to farmland. Needless to say, in an hour hunt I got my oldest and best coin in the 6 years I've been swinging a detector. 1820 capped bust and my first flat button. Scary, I know. I love relics but finds like this make it so worth it!

    Sounds like an awesome location. I love hunting fields. Capped bust anything (or a Flying Eagle) is at the top of my bucket list this year. Congrats!
