    NY I wish I could say more but the property owner is awesome and some people are jerks. But the history behind it is really awesome. I found it in a place where seneca and government officials had a meeting and some neat stuff happened

    Yeah, but the melt value for that silver is only about 60 cents.

    I kid, I kid, would have voted Banner, but by the time I viewed, it you already made it.

    Congrates on a Find of a Lifetime, my hands would still be shaking!

    That is one of the holy grails of US detectorists. After 40 years of digging in one way or another, I still haven't found an 18th century US silver coin. Rubbing steel wool over it or any other kind of cleaning will take a couple thousand off the value, so don't.

    A bucket list for sure. I have only seen one other posted in the forum since I dug mine back in 2011. Congratulation on a great find and welcome to the flowing hair club!

    FYI, the 1794 Flowing Hair Half Dime was actually minted in 1795.

    Here's mine:

    Wow!!! I'd call that one a flabbergaster! absolutely incredible and looking good for a coin that old and rare! It also looks like you managed to not hit it with the shovel! I'd say the rare the coin the more likely it is to get hit. Part of murphys law of metal detecting!

    America was founded by tough hell-raisers. Rugged citizens who evaded taxes, spoke strongly against tyranny, grew tobacco, brewed beer, distilled spirits, and smuggled weapons. And it will be saved by those same types of citizens.

If I found it, I would keep it as-is, but if it went into an estate, would be easier to liquidate if slabbed. I assume that my dug coins are either genuine, or in the case of some coppers, contemporary counterfeits. Either way, I see no value to myself to affirm what I already know.
    Excellent advice for an excellent find. Huge congrats!

    Stupendous find recondigger and congrats on the banner! I think I have only seen 1, maybe 2 of these flowing half dimes on Tnet since I started in 2009. And maybe 1 or 2 flowing full dimes. I'm still trying to find a stinkin bust silver lol. Once again, congratulations on your killer 1794 flowing hair half dime banner find!
