    1826 Capped Bust Half Dollar Found: 8-24-2008

    Hea Fellow Tnetters

    South West Texas produces some BIG SILVER

    I woke up this morning and said hec its not raining so i turned on
    the computer and check the Radar to see if there was any thing
    showing up on it which is part of my daily routine, so i saw nothing
    in the forcast so i decided to get out today @ a old house that has
    produced a couple Nickels and several Wheaties and went over
    there too hunt.

    1st target was a 1951-D Wheatie then nothing except dang trash
    for way over a hour and one half then hit my second target
    anouther Wheatie 1955 then about 2' over i got an over load signal
    so i lifted the coil to see what it could possibly be and it had tobe
    some kinda Iron target that was close to the top of the ground so
    I went back too hunting & diggin more trash up pulltabs, s-caps
    and some can-slaw, then i decided to head towards the back side
    of the old house where ive found the best finds at the house. I
    decided to work right next too that old porch since ive never
    checked it out, keep diggin up more dang junk then right @ the end
    of the porch BANG that X-TERRA 70 went to squaking really LOUD
    so i kneeled down and cut a U shaped plug and opened it up &
    rechecked the target location the machine gave me a VDI of 46 @
    7-8" deep
    so i started to dig & used my gold scoop to remove the
    dirt onto my towel, only dug on the outsides to make shure i did
    not mess what ever was in there, i scanned every scoop of dirt
    w/ the coil till i found it and out popped a 1826 .50¢ BUST Half
    i got up & started too jump around after i ran it under
    some water from the truck yelling out

    but still @ 4" deep the dirt was still like concrete.

    I'll throw my vote into the banner hat as well! That thing is beautiful!!
    We all know there's no such thing as a "hunted out" location. Let's stop using that phrase to describe a park out of which you just dug a pile of coins! Obviously that particular place wasn't "hunted out", right?
