    1825 Capped Bust Quarter

    I decided to take the day off work and go detecting and boy did it pay off. I found my best and oldest coin to date. I could believe my eyes when I seen the silver shinning in the sun on the bottom of my plug. The quarter ran a solid 85 on the AT Pro about 3 inches down. After further research the quarter appears to be the 5 over 2 variety which makes it a heck of a lot nicer! I hope you enjoy the pictures and I would appreciate any feed back.

    Congrats on a great coin. Looks like the 5 over 4 close date? A great find either way

    Amazing find ! We see a lot less of these quarters than the half dollars of the period . Yours is about a hundred years older than the Standing
    Liberty quarter I dug a couple of weeks ago - and it's in way better condition !!
