    3 inches of frozen ground reveal KEY date indian 1877 and nothing else

    Hit the park this morning, an area that has yield some really nice IHPs in the past. To my surprise the ground was solid as a rock, some areas were diggable, I was pulling nothing but trash, iron, foil, and nails. I then get a bouncy tone at 8 inches deep, I'm thinking more deep good sounding iron.
    To my surprise this little green gem pops out, Im thinking let it be an Indian, i have pulled some deep wheats from this area as well. An an indian it was, As i clean the obverse with my thumb, I was surprised to see the last two digits of the date 77, At the point i decided not to clean anymore, packed up and the decided to call it a day with my lone keeper, but what a keeper it is.

    If there is an IHC that everyone wants, the 1877 is it. A big congrats for digging that Key Date coin which is in great shape. I got a banner for mine and feel your's is just as great of a find. I am voting Banner. I also recommend you do not clean it by more than rinsing it with water.
