Hit th beach Sunday because it’s shotgun deer season here. Boy I’m glad I did. Iv been working a beach that had a large amount of dredge sand from a local harbor distributed along its shore. After pulling a 1899 barber was feeling content and happy to head home with a bit of silver in my pocket. Had made the turn to head back and was hunting just on the edge of the dry sand with my atpro when I got a 90 repeat dug it and a bronze doorknob came out two steps later 94 repeat thinking I had the other half of the doorknob I half heartedly dug. Bang! 1748 never looked so good. Needless to say lots of yelling and cursing. She weighs in at 26.2g such a beautiful coin so pumped. Haven’t posted in a while but couldn’t not share this one oh my god!

Talk about big silver! That is so awesome! I guess the question is to clean or not to clean? So amazing that it still has the antitheft scalloping on the edge!
