    Yes I did notice that when I looked it up in the book. It's a one millimeter difference. I'll have to get my micrometer out and hope that the one millimeter difference was it worn off by use

    Found close to the upper St. Johns perhaps? Or southwest area of soggy Florida?
    Central Florida West Coast. Obviously this dime wasn't lost in the twenties or thirties probably Lost in the 50s or 60s

    Yes, I expected it to be a seated.....as they have been found at this site on more than one occasion. Florida though, has a longer history than many know. We have Civil War sites, Seminole War sites, settlements from the early 1800s and Spanish missions and exploration. Not to mention a swath of Native American sites. But ,as you said, these earlier silvers don't come up often down here.

    I dont usually put that one on....its so hard for me to pinpoint well with it. I gave the face of this dime a little Carol Baskin treatment....Wacked it.
