Default 2nd Barber Outing for Washington State!!!

Dang, my lucky streak continues!! Today was a permission hunt that I secured yesterday during my 1st hunt back from Hawaii where I found another silver Washington quarter.

Today, after football of course , I hunted a house built in 1907 and while I pulled a few Wheaties from its curb strip, there was not much to speak of until I hit the yard, then my finds started to improve in terms of volume until I hit a very deep quarter signal and unfortunately I pulled a Washington Tax Token , but immediately after that target I got another 13-45/47 on my CTX and out pops the beautiful back of a barber!!!

Some of you recall my "EPIC" barber spill I found earlier this year and this is only my 2nd hunt with a barber ANYTHING in over 10 years of doing this!!

A GORGEOUS 1903S Barber Quarter, semi-key/rare date!

As always I calmly pocketed the quarter and hoped for a second silver but it wasn't to be....$2.89 in finds, 1956D, 1957S, and 1958D Wheaties.

Still I am VERY VERY happy with my silver haul as of the new fiscal year...I am now sitting at 8 silvers since 1 OCT (a total of 12 hunts). Not a bad ratio of hunts to silver

That and finding one around my parts is about as common as Big Foot sightings

It was a joy to see it in the hole

I love the back reverse of the Barber, equal to a Morgan in artistry

True it is a very clean coin. Thankfully the plug was large enough to keep it that way.

Sheesh Buell! What a succulent Barber you got there! You put in in your pocket though huh? Thats sort of not appropriate for a coin of that low minty magnitude!
You shoulda popped that baby right in your mouth like a Necco wafer or a Communion host!!
