Default Better than a Trifecta - Draped Busts

Here are two of the Draped Bust coins found at that farm house yard...more to come this year I'm sure, it's uncanny what's in that yard. We haven't even hit the farm fields in front and behind the house yet!

Better than a double trifecta. That 1798 is phenomenal. So fortunate for you to find!
