Haven't searched much the last three years but visited a farm house foundation and two 1900ish farm houses that are rentals. Found the indian head and a 1944 wheat cent at the foundation. Just the ash and trash coins at the two farm houses. Two weeks ago, I visited the friend's house that encloses/adds on to early 1800's cabin. Found the silver there. My first silver dollar.

Regardless of the condition, that Morgan is awesome- such character- makes you wonder what adventures it's been through. Oh, and that Indian, simply spectacular, perhaps the best 66 I've ever seen posted- Congrats!

It's amazing how the soil can be so forgiving to some coins. The 1944 cent found at the same site, but twenty feet away was just regular, buried-copper ugly.

The IHP is a real eye catcher.
Congrats on the silver dollar-1902?
Still on my dusty want list, good to see you get to scratch it off yours now.

Never thought an Indian would steal the show from a Morgan, but holy cow that thing is amazing! Congrats.

Finding that old IHP with full " liberty" is quite something! What a lovely coin. The silver dollar is fantastic. I'm hoping to come across one some day...very jealous. Hope to see more of your posts! Thanks for sharing.
