Wow what a tough day getting permission. Talked to 4 people, got 3 no's, the 1 yes came from a property I hit twice before on other days. I was gonna go to the area I got my 1857 seated dime a few weeks back but I'll save that for another day. Salvaged the day with 3 Indians (2) 1864s and (1) 1865, 5 wheats, some flat buttons and the ornate mystery item on the chain. 59 wheats & 9 Indians fty. I'm more than happy with 3 early Indians in pretty good shape! Thanks for looking &hh! 20170401_165827.jpg 20170401_164202.jpg 20170401_184629.jpg 20170401_184608.jpg 20170401_185924.jpg 20170401_184756.jpg

good job! I got 4 no's today, only 1 new permission in almost a year now!

It's tough but that's the permission game, you can have a day with a million people saying yes and then 3 weeks in a row with nothing but no

Nice bunch of finds. Love the early indians. I rarely ever dig any earlier than the late 1880s.

Indians always make me smile;D I always do my tribal dance after recovering them and act a fool as well. Very nice button & chain thingy too. I even appreciate a wheat penny. Some days you can't even find one so yeah, they're cool. I got me a 1868 Indian today. Going back for more tribal members tomorrow. HH mate.
