Went back to a colonial field in central VA where I already found another capped bust dime and lots of other great relics and it did not disappoint. Dug the 1811 dime in first hole, seems to be a hard date to find? then the large cent and other goodies. Thinking the horse lead or pewter piece may be a bale seal ?

Hello Gregg. You had a great day of digging. Those capped bust coins are always welcomed finds! Congratulations

Well worth the trip Greg.
Congrats on the silver dime, not many moons of circulation before being dropped.
Not sure on the horse item, looks like it broke off something, as the bade flairs out.
Great hunt!

Nice dime! It's interesting that all of them that year are overdates. If you look closely, you can see the 09 under the 11.

Incredible find! As previously noted, all 1811's were overdate to the 09, and there were only 65K of them minted- 65K-talk about an ultra rarity. We consider the 16-D Merc an ultra rarity and there were 4 times more than this minted. Add to its simply amazing condition and I'd say you have a winner- Big time Congrats!!
