Personally I find her homely, but I'd like to hook up with her every time I go out.......

She is not as beautiful as a Merc or walking liberty but she is my 1st Barber Quarter.
Down around 8" at the late 1800's fairgrounds.
Kind of a weak, one direction broken high tone but some gain adjustments brought the signal to bi-directional weak high tone.
I need to re-hit the areas I have been successful at this year; I know I have passed on some deep silver because I was a Nox noob.

One day I'll start to dig mid tones, but not yet lol
Happy hunting....

Congrats on a great find !

And yes, Merc's - SLQ's and Walking Half's are better looking coins - but Barber's are still really nice !

Hey now! She is an absolute beauty...and from Denver to boot! You know what they say about those Denver girls.

Even though I relocated my wife to Denver while I went on a USAF Active duty assignment to Korea, I have never heard what they say about Denver girls.
Do tell please!!
