    Took a SEAT today! It ain't over yet!!!

    I couldn't stand the thought of my last post being the last of the year so i got out this morning with a friend before the rain hit for a few hours. We were doing a small Park when a guy approached Greg and gave permission for his farm fields. Greg made a nice find right away, me on the other hand it took a little bit but out popped this beautiful 1856 seated quarter! My oldest silver quarter and 2nd oldest United States silver coin. Still missing my barber quarter but I guess I'll settle for a seated! Silver 86 fty, thanks for looking and hh!Click image for larger version.

    I say buy that nice farmer a beverage of his choice! Not often we get an invite without asking for it. Excellent score on the Seated Quarter. I have only found one in nine years hunting. Looks like you guys hit PAY DIRT!

    thanks a lot! Yeah it was very weird for this guy to just stop and give us permission oh, he was telling us about people that used to hunt the property for arrowheads and he seemed quite interested
