    First Silver Coin of the Year is 119 Years Old

    Hey folks,

    Iíve been on the quest to find a Seated Dime lately. I drove to a far away town today and landed permission to an 1886 house on a massive lot. I spent 4 hours there today and only covered 20% of the land.

    I feel pretty confident it hasnít been hit before which is so nice. Most of the permissions I land seem like theyíve been worked before.

    My first silver coin of the day (and year) was a 1900 Barber Dime. I also found a 1934-D merc, 1901 Indian, 5 Wheats (including a 1913-S) and a Spanish 1 Peseta from 1944.

    This yard is loaded with targets so I managed some other fun odds and ends as well. Iím aiming to get back there Friday, hopefully more to report then!

    Thanks T, I hope so! They are hard to find in this neck of the woods. Not too many folks here back in the 1800s but Iím determined to get one!
