    Seated Liberty Spill - Dimes, Quarters, and a Half Dollar!

    So I decided to hike out about 45-60 minutes through the woods & up a mountain to get to a new site. Naturally there was a shorter, easier way to get there that I discovered later on, but anywho. The site had definitely been hit before. There was iron laying on top of rocks, and kids had turned the barn foundation into their local party spot - beer cans and broken bottles all over. It was looking pretty bleak except for an area that was cleared of rocks about 300 feet away from the root cellar. Dug an 1840 William Henry Harrison presidential campaign button (Harrison ended up being elected over Martin Van Buren and became the 9th president). This alone was enough for me to consider this a successful hunt. Then shortly after the button find, I stumbled upon a seven coin spill around a small piece of stone wall. A very exciting day to say the least. Here are the coins:

    1856-O Seated Liberty Half Dollar
    1878-CC Seated Liberty Dime (semi-key date!)
    1877-S Seated Liberty Quarter
    1876 Seated Liberty Quarter
    1876 Seated Liberty Dime
    1853 Seated Liberty Dime
    1873 Indian Head Penny

    A poor quality video, but a video nonetheless:

    Incredible spill and fine effort to make it happen even after the place was looking like it was partied out. No doubt there are more great items in there,and no doubt we are waiting to see them! A Seated spill is a once in a lifetime find for most,including myself for SURE! Indeed a BANNER day! These finds are why we do what we do,even when most of what we find is unremarkable. That is an AWESOME setup shot on the mossy log,one of the best “in situ” pictures yet!

    I can see the drunken guy tumbling over the wall backwards and spilling his pockets. When he woke up he just wanted a place to rest his aching head and sore back. LOL

    Great find DE and good luck! Banner also!
