    Capped Bust....onwbttc

    was going back on an old river site that I have pounded over and over this time with my 12 inch excelerator coil lookin for deep missed targets from previous searches and this gal popped up from the massive depth of four inches...dont know how i missed it all those times. I was just about to turn off my detector from lack of good signals and leave. Not a lot of detail, but it is either a 27 or 37.....cant really tell with my old eyes.thanks for lookin, vn

    when it first came to light, i thought seated at first, as I have found several at this spot. Then I saw the shield and immediately thought draped bust dime.....then I was let down as I saw the rest of the coin..It has been well spent during its lifetime.

    Excellent find for "our" neck of the woods.

    Found close to the upper St. Johns perhaps? Or southwest area of soggy Florida?

    You can easily tell if it's an 1827 or 1837. In 1828, the size was reduced to the current size, so if this one is bigger than a current dime, it's an 1827.
