No doubt a "left-over" from the state-line gambling days where silver dollars were actually still in circulation, in gambling zones (Vegas, Reno, etc...) till the early 1960s.

As far as "ran you off", then : That simply means you either must have been in some off-limits spot, or in some off-limits virus-time. Hence I'm sure your conscience is racked with guilt. Right ? So hurry up and go back out and re-bury it. So as-to-absolve your conscience of all wrong-doing. Ok ?

Awesome coin!

When my wife was a kid her uncle would go up there to gamble a lot.
He would pay her in Silver Dollars. She still has most of them.

Congrats!!

Then you cheated. You are finding old and big coins, before going through the ranks of finding smaller silver roosies, mercs, clad, wheaties, etc... Like you skipped "straight to the top" and got that seated half, before finding Franklins, walkers, etc.... Shame on you !

Soon! I have some older land locked sites I might go to this week. It was snowing on me today, windy, and the waves battered me.
