Default Wife gives me five more minutes, which gives me IHP #8

I was supposed to quit MD-ing near dusk and do a convenience store run with my wife. When I called to tell her I was shutting down she said she was watering the plants and it would be another five minutes. A couple minutes later I got a good tone and out pops this nice 1904 Indian Head. Easiest cleaning one I ever found, there's a little spot on the back but otherwise looks good. #8 since I started detecting in October. Third from the same old farmyard. Photos taken late the next evening, not the greatest pics.
