    SEATED! 1849 half dime, large cents etc

    Finally got out n pounded the turf. I went back to the spot I got the seated and barber half dollars and used the AT pro with the 8x11 in the iron areas , near the electric and the edges of the garden where the big coil wouldn't go. I immediately found three large cents. Unfortunately they are all damaged I suspect right before they went in the ground. I hit the edge of the farm field and got a buffalo and an early dateless Lincoln which I haven't cleaned up.
    I then went to a huge field that was recently plowed. The farmers were harvesting across the road and it was dusty but hey are clearing all my permissions!!! There was a house there (1890) and I went from memory as to the location. Memory did not serve and only when I got home did I see how close I was to the potential action. All I got was trash signals so I aimlessly walked the field which was really clean. Every signal was a button or buckle and I was getting a little antsy as there should be coins around. Finally I walked the 1/2 plus mile across the field to the far side and got a shallow " button" signal which turned out to be a tiny silver coin. First I thought it was a trime but its a half dime. Its in great shape- a bit weathered but without a scratch. I love seated coins and half dimes are one of my favorites, right behind Spanish silver.
    I spiraled out from that find and found a cool pin from the same period (not pictured) . Then darkness fell ad I headed home. I got a load of buttons and buckles but I am after the reales and seated liberties that I know I'll find with enough patience. Now that some of the better spots are cleared I can't wait to get back at it. I'll post the buttons and buckles when I get them cleaned up but wanted to post the good stuff first. Thanks for looking and best of luck out there!
