I left out around 10 AM, the plan was to door knock. I had the names of the owners for the four properties I had listed. First knock was a YES. :headbang: The owner just wanted to see my finds. My 2nd plug was 2 to 3 minutes into the hunt and produced the Buffalo. :thumbsup: This place is virgin, but with much soil moved over the century. About 1.5 hours in I dug the Rosie with 4 wheats in the same plug. :hello2: Moments later the next plug uncovered the Merc. :icon_thumright: Wheats were everywhere. I ended up digging 20 of them (1916 - 57D). Most of the wheats are from the 50s. Four hours in I got a big high tone, I thought to myself "here's that bucket list barber" and sure enough about 6" down I reached in and pulled the silver half out, and by god it is a Barber. :icon_cheers: How cool is that. 8-) I am only 40% done on the 1st grid. I know where I'll be tomorrow. Maybe an SLQ will show up? :dontknow:

Your persistence and precision are always a sight to behold. Love to see that kind of work rewarded with another check mark on the old bucket list. Never having dug more than a quarter sized silver myself, I can't imagine the fun and thrill of a barber half coming out of the dirt. WTG dude!
