I was driving by a permission I pounded earlier in the year multiple times and noticed they had skimmed 6 inches of dirt off the old front yard of a period house and were getting ready to pour concrete soon so I rehunted the dirt area near the trucks with my 5x8 coil and am very pleased with what I found in a few hours, even the iron is cool! I just posted about an 'O' mintmark barber dime last night and found another today (only my second barber coin since moving to Colorado) but it has been shot and the front is totally roached, the date area of the coin is missing...tried to find it in vain oh well least the IHP looks nice. Anyway I love old period brass and copper stuff so was pretty stoked with the take. Hope ya'll had a good day out there, take care!
