Dug this a few weeks ago, little late on posting. 1830 capped bust 5c piece. Love when these early silvers pop out of the ground!

What a crisp silver, I've been fortunate to have found only one myself of the same year. Though mine takes a backseat to this crisp example you've dug. Congrats!

That’s a nice one. My only capped bust 5c isn’t nearly as pretty. Congrats!

Just gorgeous in detail and such a pleasant surprise to recover such a gem. These old silvers are on my Bucket List yet I don't expect to ever find one here in Illinois. Ya' never know though so we keep after it. Congrats on a real beauty my friend.:headbang:
