    Short hunt yields tiny bucket lister!

    Was out workin the fields again today and i found some more goodies.

    The usual bunch of buttons and relics. I have no idea what the pole with round top thing is. Its made of brass and hollow.

    Heres the copper stuff. A Hibernia on the left and a holed ct copper on the right. And a cut cent. I can see most of one cent on the back but nothing much on the front. Could be an IHP or flying eagle.

    And heres the star of todays hunt. This is my very first half dime. 1837 first year, small date (flat 1) no stars seated half dime! I never thought i would find one but here it is! And its beautiful besides the field scratches. It rang up in the 60s on my mxt. Which would be about what a zincoln sounds like.

    I cant imagine they got much use! The pocket holes didnt have to be too big to lose one of those!

    I have tried many detectors but will never get rid of my MXT. With the 13” detech coil this thing is unstoppable.

    That's a tough coin to find based on the fact I haven't found a seated half dime in 35 years of searching
