    Flowing Hair Half Dime -- Off the fantasy bucket list - With video

    Hi T-net friends.

    On Saturday I found a coin that no one expects to dig. 1795 Flowing Hair half dime.

    Go easy on me folks--I did kiss this coin with my shovel. It was in the ground at 90 degrees, about 6 inches, and was surrounded by flaky targets making it very difficult to pinpoint.

    I know a lot of you folks are vocal about not liking videos on the forum or not trusting links, but I assure you this is a safe link and the video is incredible. Very emotional find for me.



    I was using a Fisher F75Ltd and operating in De mode (which I rarely do) 20 disc, 3 tone. The signal was just a whisper with VDI fluctuating between 55-60.

    The coin was found in Maryland on private property, with permission.

    Thank you for enjoying this tiny piece of rescued history with me!

    Brad
