    First find of the new year

    Well, went to an old home site, it seems they were all bulldozed over in the georgia area. Found an IH about two inches down. It is slightly bent from the dozer and I can't get a date off of it. It is a 18X6.

    Congrats. Looks to me to possibly be a fatty indian minted between 1859 to early 1864. Does it seem to thicker than your other indians?

    When I first pulled it out I thought it was! but it has a really thick patina/mineral build up plus the last digit would put it later.
