Barber half found today!

I went back to a spot I have found some fire damaged barber dimes a couple years ago.

The time of year helped me a lot today. The ground is soaked and this is a trashy fill type area but in a historic part of town. The good signals aren't that’s deep, and deep targets seem to be memorial cents. I have swung here a fair bit in the summer, and these coins were not as apparent then. Lots of common coins today, and this treasure!

Congrats on the Half Dollar
Looks like the half has seen some rough times.
Makes one wonder if it was a house fire loss.
