Default james monroe

Spending hours this morning surfing metal detecting I was dying to get out but could not think of a place to go, so I just started driving and the first place I stopped at and the first dig i did I found a James Monroe $1, I liked to fell over he was only a couple inches deep and I scratched him digging for him but he is my first great find! until today I was only finding new coins and that is all I thought I would ever find. now I have to go out and buy a coin book, any ideas? also today I found a dime 1960 and a penny also new not old. At some point i will try to post a picture of my find.

Its pretty modern and only worth face value, but still a fun find!!! Keep it up and the real goods will soon come....and the '60 dime should be silver, right?

Cool find. Not too many of those Presidential Dollars Coins make it into circulation long enough to get lost!

If that dime you found was a 1960 you found some silver. That's one of the best finds you can get. The dollar coin is worth a dollar. Only a couple years old at the most. Still rare to find though. No one spends them.
