I took Wednesday afternoon off to pick my son up from college. I figured I would detect for an hour or so on the way there to break up the ride. I went to the woods where I dug a nice Connecticut copper a couple weeks ago. Since I had already hit the areas near the cellar hole, I decided to search the abutting stonewall enclosed area. I swung my way about 75 yards to the end, then turned around and swung my way back. I was getting discouraged at the lack of good signals when I suddenly got a nice clean high tone with a VDI of 22-23. I dug the hole and found this beautiful 1835 capped bust dime. This is my first capped bust dime and my oldest U.S. silver! To me it looks like it was dropped early in its life. Hoping I was in a hot spot, I continued swinging in that area and about five minutes later got a steady mid tone with a VDI of 18-19. I dug the hole thinking it might be a button and was psyched to see a copper coin. It is a William III halfpenny, possibly 1701, but definitely a third issue (1699-1702). I think there are more hidden details on this coin, but I can’t seem to budge the hardened dirt. I dug nothing but assorted scrap after these coins. I am super excited about these coins and this new spot, and hope to hit it again in a few days when I bring him back to school. Thanks for checking out my post. Happy Thanksgiving and happy hunting!
