    My First Barber Half

    She's no longer pretty
    and she's lost her shine,
    but man oh man
    she's mine all mine.

    Amazingly, after thousands of old and new coins, a Barber half still eludes me. It must have a very nice feeling to have found yours. Congrats, & thanks for sharing.

    Re: My First Barber Half

    The story behind the find is almost as amazing as the find itself.
    I was at a work detail for a newly formed Bass Fishing Club in my area.
    After the work was finished I asked the city official, if I could detect the area we had just finished cleaning.
    I was given the go ahead, but hadn't planned on doing any detecting until early next week, but
    while putting some of my tools away in my car another member noticed my detector and asked "Do those things really work as good as they advertise?" I took out the detector to show him the ins and outs of my XLT. The first signal hit was a half dollar at 2 inches.......I figure it was probably a pop can which often sets my XLT off in the halves VDI reading. I dug it and it was the coin you see pictured above. I think he's convinced they are as good as advertised....and will be joining the ranks of MDers soon.

    Great find and love the circumstances!
    A gentleman farmer named Floyd
    With some of his kin was annoyed
    The boys in their youth
    Did not know the truth
    And one of his tools was destroyed
