You have found what I call “an incredible site” Trapper. When you’re “cherry picking” Seated coins,you might have found a good site. You just never know when you’re gonna hit the huge one,and you have officially hit the huge one!
MEGA congratulations on doing the homework,the legwork and the hunting work to put those beauties in your collection.
334? Tick tock man! Tick tock...
We are suppose to get rain all day tomorrow Kevin but if there is a break I am going back. Figure to go with the CTX at least one more run then go back over every thing with the Nox. Maybe get my first Shield. This has been a dream week with out a doubt. I have stopped at this location at least eight times over the last three years and last Wednesday was the first time I ever found somebody home.

I've loved watching your progress this year. Fun seeing that silver count go through the roof. I dug a Shield nickel a few weeks ago. Hard to believe I have one up on a living legend! Haha.[/QUOTE]
Now I'm depressed, only dug my first "V" earlier this year. So who knows this site could give up just about anything. Sooner or latter I will get the Shield conquered.

Thank you Tom. I think all Seated's are beautiful but the Seated Halves to me are exceptional. This one is in very good condition.

You know Jak I may not sleep tonight. Had a rough nite on Sunday after digging the Capped Bust and I am still on a adrenaline high yet. I keep pinching myself to make sure I am not in a dream. Trapper

Congrats on that amazing seated half and all of the other great finds, Trapper! One of the treasure magazines should do a feature story on you or something!

Whoa! Now theres some old Dirt! Congratulations and Good on ya for helping the Land owner with the grass cutting...Evidently the vibrations from the mower deck made those coins sort of wiggle up and lay flat! Being a good guy goes a long way in this Sport!!

It's funny Tom, I just had two of the most rewarding days in this hobby and I still am left wanting. Odd things I think make us click, so now I will chase after a Shield Nickel as it has become my holy grail.

Jon thank you. This year has been spectacular for me, first retirement and now in in this hobby. Just like childhood, free time and you get to play in the dirt.

Very kind words Fred, thank you. Knowing I was going to retire I started a list of places to hunt and when I was running errands I stopped and asked permissions on properties that had the possibility to hold Silver. I caught a couple breaks that led to more permissions and that's what got me to where I am at. Oh and the addition of the "Nox" helped. Not much of a story.

Thank you Rusty. I have been truly blessed this last couple of days. Digging a Capped Bust Dime and now this Seated Half Dollar. I can't imagine it getting any better. Trapper

Trapper... That is nothing short of amazing. What a property ! What a story !

Have found Seated dimes and one Seated quarter, but never a Seated or Barber half. Wow... And Good for you !

By the way, Obverse=HEADS, Reverse=TAILS

Thanks John. I don't know if it was being a good guy or the greed to get on the ground after Sunday's teaser. I know I am liking the result. I am planning a return trip if the ever rain stops.

Great finds.
Appreciate the reply Walter. I don't dig Seated Coins often enough not to be ecstatic. Was just trying to be a bit witty with the settling statement. Truth is I'm thrilled anytime I dig any Silver.

Thanks Jerry, if this a dream please don't wake me. Riding the high of these last two hunts has me still shaking in disbelief. The "Wow" is bouncing between my ears. Trapper

Thanks Jim not only for the kind words but to help educate this old guy. I have been blessed with digging two Seated Halves. My first is a 1876cc also in fantastic condition, it was dug 7 years ago but is still my most cherished memory in this hobby.

Thank you Brian. It is my intention to go back as soon as weather allows. And again after that.

John, I don't know if there is a Gold Coin there but I aim try and find out. If that does not happen it is my plan to purchase one with my clad. Need to dig about $50 more for a $5 Half Eagle.
