Default Finally scored a Barber on the year

I went north of where I live to detect a park in a little town where I've scored some IHP's before.
Had zero luck there so I jumped across the street to a curbstrip and dug a shallow clad quarter and then what I thought was going to be a shallow memorial but ended up being a really nice 1906 Barber dime. I also dug a couple wheats but they were nothing special and one was too crusty to identify.

Thanks Tom! I try not to wipe them down too heavily....I don't like that extremely shiny look of a cleaned coin.
