Thought y’all might enjoy these photos which are the result of 30 years in the dirt. First off, my dug Seated Half Dollars:

Bottom left, an 1853 arrows and rays yard coin I dug back in 1993. Clockwise, an 1858-O dug in 2009 which I believe was cut in the 19th c. to make a gun sight out of the rim. A beautiful 1842-O dug in 2013. Far right an 1872 dug in 2014, and below, my second 1858-O, dug at a sugar mill site last year, which I haven’t cleaned yet via galvanic coupling. It’s still au naturel as dug and rinsed free of dirt.

Next, Seated Quarters:

Top row: an 1854 with arrows dug in Southern Indiana in 2010 which I left uncleaned, an 1847-O dug in 2013, an 1858-O (2015), an 1858-O (2017, also uncleaned), an 1876-S (2018), Second Row: an 1891 last year Seated eye popper dug in 2019, a worn 1875 dug in 2020, and an 1876-CC dug this year.

Phenomenal finds! It beats my lifetime seated count. Love the condition of them in the LA soil. Your count just this year alone beats most others 30 year finds.

The historical wealth and affluence down here really boggles the mind. Of course, forced labor and exploitation were the reason. One can’t dig down here and not think about that IMO.

Great Finds with the seated ... I have 3 seated halfs after 40 years .. Nice going
I’ve been super lucky! Seems that some places in the US are easier to find them than others. Same with silver dollars and gold coins

Outstanding "family" group photos! A seated half is still on my bucket list. I'm guessing that for each one of those that were lost, the owner knew it and was bummed about it. That's a lot of money back in those days.
