Default Contest..OVER..guess the oldest coin I will dig at 1954 house

CONTEST IS OVER SEE LAST PAGE FOR WINNER!!

Ok guys, lets have some fun here. I got permission from a friend to detect their 1954 house tomorow.....if weather holds out, calling for 36 degrees.

Anyhow, I dont hunt many houses this NEW, but thought it might be good for a couple rosies or maybe a silver washington.....but who knows? Maybe something older is there.

So all you have to do is guess the OLDEST coin I will find there, that is simple enough, huh?

I will give the closest guesser a coin of my choice, depending how good the yard is

If someone guesses the exact year, I will just send you a silver dime, but it has to be exact

Let the fun begin, if the weather changes and I cant hunt, I will update tomorrow

remember all you need is a year, I do NOT need the kind of coin, just the year!
