I'm glad to see I'm not the only one that can't find any of the real goodies. A few wheats and one buffalo so far--nine months of digging.

I am getting close to completing this list. Just need the Barber family, can't find a Barber anything to save my life. To be fair though, my 1888 Morgan dollar, 1922 Peace dollar and 1943 steel wheat were eyeball finds. All others found while detecting including one off of matmit's list, an 1867 shield nickel.
