Only about a week ago, I was admiring the Seated Quarter on Silvermonkey's 12/2 thread "Bucket List Find, plus Bonus." I commented on his post that I had never found one myself. My luck changed yesterday at my cornfield permission. I was scanning between the rows of 10" high cornstalk stubble, when I got a nice solid high tone on the AT Pro. I dug the plug and the coin pretty much rolled out off the pile. I thought at first it was a modern state quarter, but quickly determined it was a Seated Quarter. I hardly ever find Seated coins, and this is my first quarter. It is an 1853 with arrows and rays, so it is has one of the highest mintage totals of the series. However, that doesn't bother me at all, as it is a beautiful coin in great shape. I am no expert, but it does not look like it was in circulation long. Hope you all have good luck this weekend, as long as it is not in my field :laughing7:.

Congrats. Only 7 of my 62 Seated silvers are quarters but find one of those and they tend to have some more friends around
62 Seateds…holy smokes! Hope you’re right about friends nearby, as I would love another coin like this one. Thanks!!
