    Sorry for your loss, I tell the homeowner that if I find something related to their property they will get it, otherwise its mine, no problems. Congrats on your silvers for the day.
    Any day of hunting, whether good or bad is better than not hunting at all

    There's another way to look at this, if it's a guy that says "I don't think you'll find anything anyway"! I'm quite content to let him think he was absolutely right. Reach into the hole pick up a pinch of dirt with one hand and the find in the other. Shake your head in disgust and throw the pinch of dirt back in the hole. When you stand up shake your head again and stamp the dirt back in the hole, while tucking your find in the unseen pocket. We're Pirates right that's how we roll. I relate these folks to change up con artists that would let a classic car rot down in their woods before selling it to someone that would save it.

    On the flip side. If it's a lady that doesn't have a clue I'd show her and tell her everything I know about the find and or write it down for her, then let her choose whether or not she'd like to have it.

    For this guy to have pulled a trick like this on behalf of his donkeybound grandson just ain't right!

    That's my story and I'm stikin to it!

    Chivalry is one thing but self victimization is something else!

    Sigh. Not cool.

    I’d say buy a similar coin from a different seller. No reason to give them any more of your blood, sweat and tears. Frankly doing that can even be great part of the story.

    I lost the only SLQ I ever found and even made the long trek back to the last place I knew it was in my possession to see if I might look for it in the lady's yard. She allowed me, but it was never found. I do have my one and only Barber quarter though, so I guess my luck is better than yours was! Good luck getting your next one!

    I agree but does anyone know the actual legality of telling someone to go jump in a lake after having dug up something on their land? Usually, I'd like to think that if someone gave me permission to detect on their property, I'd naturally think I get to keep the finds, unless they said anything to the contrary PRIOR to detecting and digging. Any former LEOs or attorneys here who might have a better idea?

    PS---thanks to the OP for sharing his sad experience with us... I have only JUST PURCHASED my first detector and am anxiously awaiting its arrival so I can join you guys in the adventure.

    That's why when I find anything exciting I immediately go put it in my truck. If the landowner or anyone else (kids!) are following me around or watching me closely I just don't dig a signal. They usually get bored soon and walk away. If they come up to me later and ask what I found I show them a pouch full of trash, and examine and explain about it each piece at a time with great interest and excitement.

    Nice job on the SLQ, and to bad about your other situation. I think a lot of us may have had that situation. About 25 years ago, I was detecting a yard and found a very nice old metallic toy in the shape of a cow. It was about 4 inches long. The homeowners Nephew came out and asked me what I had found. I pulled the toy out of my pouch, handed it to him so he could look at it, and he ran in the house with it, never for me to see again ! Lessen learned. If I show someone who is younger one of my finds now, it stays in my hands ! You will find enough in your lifetime to overlook your bad situation, although you may never forget it. I know I didn't.

    Not a bad idea.

    Thanks! Luckily I have not ran into that situation yet but I am sure it will happen.

    The only SLQ I ever found was on a permission hunt at an old house. Agreement was made beforehand that anything I found was mine to keep. It was the only good find that day so it would have been a bummer if I would have had to give it to the homeowner.

    Found a bucket lister and lost my oldest barber in same day!

    Sorry for the loss of your Barber quarter. That standing liberty is rather sweet, though, and I have yet to find one! I think good karma will follow you and your next Barber quarter will be sweet! Best of luck.
    The detector is my stethoscope to the earth, discovering the heartbeat of the past, to breathe new life into artifacts for us and the future.....
