Default Beautiful 1843 Seated Quarter

While hunting an old 1870's high school my girlfriend Sue dug this gorgeous 1843 Seated Liberty Quarter using her White's TreasureMaster detector. The coin was 8-8.5 inches deep. Sue also dug the 17.7 gram sterling silver bracelet. I dug the 1920 Mercury dime. Clad totals were also pretty good....93 coins worth $11.69.

That quarter is gorgeous. I hope to find one some day. Seated dimes are hard enough to come by. Quarters? One can dream!
