Default First seated of the year!

yup I only hit 1800s silver with my shovel I guess. This coin was 7 or 8 inches down and completely on edge. I thought I was just digging another rusty nail. That will show me to be careless. I will treat every signal like a seated from now on.
HH.

Great job again Greg! Seated coins are not easy to come by, I think you know that though. Happy hunting bud!

Congrats on the Seated! First of the year? I've been digging 41 years and still haven't found one.

I know what you mean. I have never nicked a rosie or merc, but the first barber quarter I gouged the heck out of! You pulled a great looking coin regardless, enjoy it.

Nice find. My first seated was a half dime. Wacked it good with the shovel. Takes skill to hit a coin that small with the digger

From Alfred Lord Tennyson's poem In Memoriam, 1850:

I hold it true, whate'er befall;
I feel it, when I sorrow most;
'Tis better to have found and scratched
Than never to have found at all.
