Default Indians, Barber, V, And A Super Old SoCal Silver Coin!

Hey everyone,
I have been working from home and trying to get out when I can even if it is for a 2-3 after I am done working in the evenings.I have been trying to go to spots where people do not go to so I have spots mostly to myself.

Last Sunday was my only all day hunt and it ended up being a really good one. I found 2 indians (1892 and 1900), a 1902 V nickel, 15 wheats, a silver ring and a merc. Then I had a couple short after work hunts and found mostly wheats and a little piece of silver. Then this past Saturday, I went to a pounded spot for about 4 hours. Didn't find a lot of oldies, but what I did find was a 1902 barber dime and a 1854 Seated Liberty quarter which is now my new oldest silver coin and only my second seated quarter I have found. They are pretty rare in SoCal to find.

Hope you are all staying healthy and safe.
Jason

They are tough to find just about anywhere man, I've only found one seated quarter in the few years I've been at it, and it was the same date as the one posted here. A fantastic report, congrats!

Thanks! I find most of the marbles in old dirt lots where houses used to stand. They are usually partially cover to almost all the way covered with just a little showing out of the dirt.

Gosh Jason you really are on to something good. Silver, more Indians, old Nickels, Wheat''s and Marbles. What more can a detectionist ask for well a beautiful Seated Quarter, that's all. Your game is at the top Jason, may it continue for a long, long time. Congrats my friend. Trapper

Thanks Tom, that's exactly where it was found which makes it even sweeter.

Thanks buddy! Not sure I am going to be able or willing to go to some of these spots anymore for a while with the virus. Hope you are doing good.

Thanks! It is in pretty good shape but does have some scratches from back in the day or just being in the ground.

Thanks! I enjoy hunting some of the old lots in my area especially after a good rain looking for marbles and maybe getting a few old coins.
