First coin I've dug this year that was worth posting. Out with Park Pirate at one of our hunted to death city parks this morning and got lucky with this nice 1804 Draped Bust half cent. Last one I dug was in October of 1989 so its been a while since I found one.

Hi Jeff. Found with the Nox. Screw cap reading. Tony was right by me when I dug it. Just warming up for our road trip.

That's a beautiful coin, congratulations!
And it's validation that digging screw-top signals is worth doing!
