    Great Morning but disappointed

    Had an hour or so to go hunt this morning and got a permission at a mid 1800's house. I found my oldest coin in great shape and i hit it with my shovel, so disappointed in myself. I found a different type of civil war bullet i have never found before and a flat button from the early 1800's so i had a great day just mad at myself.

    Nice coin. Think of it this way, there's probably no way you'd sell that coin so the ding doesn't really make any difference. That's how I'd look at it anyway. Congrats on some great finds.

    1786 Vermont Landscape Copper (Ryder 7 variety)
    1787 Vermont Copper
    1787 New Jersey Copper (Maris 63 variety)

    George Washington Inaugural Button (GW 1 type)
    1872 Indian Head Cent (VF/EF condition)
    1866 Indian Head Cent (EF condition)

    Your right, i would never sell it but it still bothers me,lol. Sometimes i get in a hurry and i need to slow down and be more careful especially at a house that old because you never know what you are going to find.

    That is still a super nice quarter and you could have done a LOT more damage to it.
    Lesson learned and next seated will be rarer and just as nice or better condition.

    At least yours didn’t have a hole in it like mines. I wouldn’t care if I tapped every one I found as long as I’m finding them. Awesome finds, you are sure to dig more. Ps you can borrow my kids plastic shovel if you want. Buahahaba

    I would just keep telling myself and everyone else, that I found it that way !! That should help ease your pain. Congrats on a very nice coin.

    Congrats on the silver, and it hurts to do the dings and I still believe to dig wide and deep when it comes to digging something up. That only comes to mind when I did the same but much worse, I ripped off her chest!

    You could get the slab type holders where the little tab covers the ding, as is hidden. Just a thought(trying to ease the pain)Lol

    Congrats on the really nice quarter, and bullet. I have no seated coins, so that looks pretty good to me.

    When I hit a coin, I claim that is was “resisting recovery”.

    Best of luck to your sir.

    Congrats on the seated silver. Your bullet looks like it is a Spencer. Does it have a flat base?
