    Barber Half!!!!!! and another Merc!

    Went back over to the little town nearby that I found the seated dime in last week intending on hitting a few more sidewalk strips. I never got the chance to
    because as soon as I got out of my truck the house across the street caught my eye, it looked pretty old to me so I went over and knocked on the door and got
    permission to hunt it.

    The lady was real nice and told me it was built in 1890, so I was hoping for something old.

    Once I started hunting it the third target ended up being a nice little 1939 Merc,when I flipped the plug, I didn`t even have to pinpoint it as I could see it in the plug.

    Right there I figured I might have a good yard so kept on going. Ten minutes later I got a strong 29-30 that kept high toning and spiking up to 35 so when I
    dug the hole and got the plug out, I still wasn`t down to it, the pinpointer was going nuts, so I after digging a bit more I saw what looked like it could be a
    half dollar down there! It was deep, must have been about 10" or so.

    After I got it out of the hole I ran to the truck to get some water on it an once I cleaned it off a bit I saw the eagle looking at me, I was thinking I got a walker,
    but it turned out to be a 1905-s Barber!!

    I didn`t realize it until I got home, but I just completed my Barber set, I have the quarter, dime and now the half!!

    After that I found three wheats, and a bank token to finish out the morning, I don`t think I quite got half the yard finished, can`t wait to go back in the
    morning and see what else awaits!

    The quarter was the first one I got! I was never expecting the dime and the half within two weeks, wow!

    Great job on the silvers, especially that Barber Half. You just never get tired of seeing those come out of the ground.

    We just never seem to learn, do we. I keep telling that these coins we find do not *want* to be found!! Better walk around with one eye on that necklace *ALL* the time!

    I saw "Delano" on the token and immediately thought ... "hey, Delano!". Then I saw Buffalo is where you're from. Howdy, neighbor! Great find on the Barber!

    Super Nice Barber Half & & 'S' mint , 1905 is a good date for a Barber & it's also my Grandfathers birth year.
