I was back at the same site I've been pounding since around 2017 yesterday. There is an electric dog fence that usually wreaks havoc on my Deus II but the landowner had it turned off. I was able to get into a few small areas that were previously unhuntable and managed to hear a squeaky 81 in my headphones....out popped this beauty 1857 half dime.

Have found like 100 coppers and a handful of Spanish silver over the years but seated coins have generally eluded me. Only found 2 seated dimes, both back in 2009/2010.

This was a nice surprise.
