    Monday Blues are gone!

    !t has been my first year back at the hobby, and until about a month ago (1906 Barber quarter), I hadn't found ANY notable coins. Well, I got to hunt a new permission Monday, and was I EVER rewarded for searching 1.5 hours to find the house that was supposed to be there in 1877!
    Check this off my bucket-list- a 1858 Flying Eagle Penny! It's rough, but for 163 years old and recently exhumed, I'll take her! I didn't realize that they only made these in 1857 and 1858- I just saw one online and thought they looked cool! (I have 2 photos with dirt still on and 2 after tooth-picking- though not quite as tightly focused, and would invite any info on cleaning better, or preserving it as it is.)
    I also found some other Items (plus junk), of course, but the penny was THE day!
    BTW- I found a lead ball that is .320" with a flat side. That be a shotgun pellet? Or was there a .32 caliber pistol that shot ball projectiles?

    Ya' did good.............Took me 20 yr's to find my first!
    If you want to find the early stuff, you need to hunt the farm field's along the Missouri for early cabin sites. You've got a lot of early history around you! That's how I started finding the really old stuff!

    Good Luck!

    Congrats on your first Flying Eagle. That is a tough one to find. I only have one, in 32 years of hunting.
