    New Site Gives Up Civil War Goodies and an AWESOME Bucket Lister!!

    I got out with my hunting buddy Craig for a while on Sunday to a new site that we recently found. It's near one of our big Civil War camps, so we figured that there would be a few relics there. We were right! On our first trip to the site last week, I ended up with three Civil War Minie Balls and my first ever Barber Quarter!! That was a bucket list item for me since I had only ever found silver Washington quarters up until then. We decided to go back there on Sunday and it ended up being one of the best hunts for coins that I've ever been on! Less than 5 minutes into the hunt and I get a MINT 1865 Indian Head in my second hole! We know soldiers were camped there in 1865, so I'm betting it was dropped by one of them. A few minutes later I get a really nice General Service Eagle Button! It's been probably 2 years since I've found a nice complete eagle button. Shortly after digging the button, it starts pouring down rain. We hadn't been there long, so we decided to wait out the storm in the car. 45 minutes later, we were back at it. I dig an 1891 V Nickel right off the bat, and then it started storming again. We decided to just call it quits for the day and went to get some food. While we were eating, the rain stopped and the sun came out. Normally we would have just gone straight back home, but this time we both agreed that we wanted to give it a couple more hours since the storms had passed. I'm glad we did! We get back to the site and literally my FIRST hole was a very tiny half dime sized silver coin that turned out to be a William III Netherland 10 Cent coin! That was definitely a surprise find. About 20 minutes later I get a very deep 90 signal on the AT Max. I dig down, find the target with my pinpointer and scoop out a handful of dirt. When I looked down in the hole, I could see a quarter sized silver coin in the bottom. I get it out of the hole and could see that it was something different. After popping the dirt off one side and what I saw made my heart skip a beat... I saw a beautiful seated Lady Liberty!!! I cleaned it off to reveal an awesome 1877 Seated Liberty Quarter!! This was one of the coins near the top of my bucket list and it took me nearly 23 years to find it! It is in really great condition too! Interestingly, I found the 1934 Buffalo Nickel only about a foot away. Anyway, by this time, it was starting to get late and we had to get back home. I didn't get a lot of Civil War relics, but it was still one heck of a hunt! I can't believe I got to scratch off two coins from my bucket list in two hunts to the same site. We'll definitely be going back to that site very soon! Sorry for the long post. Thanks for looking and HH!

    What a great hunt. I wish I had some CW sites around here, love the artifacts you can find, and that you found. I still have not found a seated coin, so that one really caught my eye. Sweet find. Congrats, and the rain just ups your Detectors sensitivity. Thanks for a Nice post. HH

    Nice finds,

    Seated quarters are hard to come by. That 1849 silver is pretty cool to.
