Found this beautiful 1885 Morgan Silver Dollar about 3 to 4 inches down in a field about 100 yards fram an 1800's plantation house in Alabama. Fairly good condition with a New Orleans Mint Mark. It was found using my At Pro with a NEL Storm Coil...I will have to say it was a good day. Can wait to get back to that field and see what else I can come up with.

Pictures were after I cleaned it. Had mud stuck to it. VDI on the AT Pro was 92.

Very nice find! I can't wait to find my first :D You didn't dig any Barbers or Indians at the plantation? Not that a Morgan isn't enough but I would think if you found that, there's more!!
Not yet, didn't have but a few hours out there. But have permission to go back anytime to hunt.
