    An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

    I don't see any mint mark on the obverse.
    If there are no stars underneath the reverse side eagle, the coin is from 1916 or 1917.
    Good catch in any event.

    Remember its not the treasures we find or the length of the journey. But the fact that when we are done we can look back at our life and smile with a satisfied feeling that we enjoyed the trip. So always "Keep Swinging And Keep Smiling"

    Surely one of America's most beautiful coins. Congrats on a great save. Would love to see a better picture though, as it is such a nice coin.

    Congrats on finding that SLQ. Also I am impressed by your discipline that you did not clear the dirt away from a fresh find and risk scratching it.

    Some awesome finds and a huge congrats on digging your first Standing Liberty! They are hard coins to find, I have only found one, which was at a house where I was getting ready to leave and the owner suddenly decided they wanted to keep everything

    Got my third on Friday and the only one with any hint of a date, either ‘17 or ‘27 but they are a hard find for sure, almost as hard a the only 20th century silver I haven’t dug, the elusive franklin half ): some day Ben, some day
