Default First Flying Eagle Cent

At a newer permission yesterday that until yesterday only yielded a few relics an Lincoln's due to significant filling and grading around the 1830's house in the 40's-60's. Did manage to find a "hot spot" next to a former (no longer there) log schoolhouse nearby. Low and behold an 1857 Flying Eagle popped out. Forgot to take picture of it in the hole but in the excitement initially thought just a worn IHP. Pics attached hopefully.

Thanks all! Was using XP Deus but wasn't paying attention to VDI numbers. Just listing to the tones. Was a weak scratchy signal about 7" down, I remember that. Usually IHP`s ring up around 84 on the Deus but depends on frequency used too.
