    Excellent find
    Half dimes are hard to come by.
    That one appears to be in great shape.
    Congratulations

    Thanks. This one is my 30th seated since I started detecting in 2015. More than half are dimes from the fairgrounds site though. This has been the year of finding seated in different spots. 8 seated from five different spots
