    Not One, but TWO Bucket List Coins Today!!

    Greetings all,

    My hunting buddy and I wanted to get back out to our new farm field permission today to search for more Civil War relics. Well, we didn't find any Civil War relics, but I got an awesome 1867 Shield Nickel (my 3rd one)! Craig completely blew my coin out of the water when he called me over to see some large silver in the side of his hole... It turned out to be an 1890 Morgan Dollar!! I've never seen one of those come out of the ground before. Anyway, we found some other house site related relics, a fired .54 caliber musket ball, some spoon pieces, a nice horse rosette, a flat button, and a ton of trash like usual. All in all it was a heck of a hunt with TWO bucket list coins! HH!

    Excellent coins. Congrats. One of those is still on my bucket list also. I'm still looking for my first Shield Nickel. Have been lucky enough to have dug 3 Morgans.
