Default on the board with a couple old sweet ones

Well, just like a bunch of other of you lucky northerners I took full advantage of that incredible and unreal dreamy heatwave. Honestly, I lost track of how many times I left /snuck out of the house with my CTX I'll say 3 , since I can only remember dumping out my pockets 3 times for pictures in the last 2 days......
Anyway, I open the year with a seated coin as I did last year. I was telling myself great this will be my one and only seated coin for the whole year again, but then a few hours later at another nearby small town I snagged another one.
The second one is actually kind of a bucket list find for me since I have been wanting to find an early version seated coin pretty badly. Maybe......just maybe ,...if I pray hard and get a little bit more luck there may be a bust silver hiding out in this spot.....Over the last year it has coughed up an 1898 quarter, a few Barber dimes, 2 1700s Reales, and the 1857 seated dime !!!!you just never know.
I don't think I have ever detected that many hours in such a short span, but I knew the window was an incredible juicy opportunity and was gonna disappear quickly......And now, back to icing my shoulder......
Does this combo count as an official trifecta??
3 silvers fty.....

Nice write up and congrats on the coins. I Like the 1891. don't see that year too often. I think of barbers for the 1890s. Awesome getting two seaters that close together! My frequency seems 1 every 5 years!

Congrats on the silvers,especially the seated, and some fine hunting. I would be happy with just one seated this year. HH Mark

Great hunt and I like the difference on the back of those two seated dimes. The older version is bad ass!
