Yeah I pulled the capped bust first and only saw the eagle so i thought it might be a seated but then when I saw the front I just freaked out. After I got back to the hole I just rechecked out of habit and found the friends. I am still in shock this morning.

Fantastic finds Big!

Early American silvers are pretty rare.

I'm a supporter of the 5x8 as well. In those iron infested and trashy places they separate very well. They aren't like having a hockey puck on the end of a stick. Like you mentioned, depth is still very good too.

I had trouble getting 10" with the stock coil let alone the 5x8, excellent finds! Stories like this make me miss my garrett
