Default 2nd career bust half

This is one of the nicest coins I have ever found. I rank it #2.

Hit a new site today, with an old school and some old ballfields, and I expected a 30s-40s kind of silver site.

But no silvers on the ballfields or around the school building, but the site has a large amount of fields, so I wandered them a while. Hit some old targets like an unidentifiable copper (I think it is a KG II), a shoe buckle, and some tack, and a beautiful 06-48 to 08-48 on the E-Trac in a remote corner of one of the fields, near the end of the day, and there she was.

Its one of the weird 3 varieties for that date, not sure which one, but I think the "patched 3".

I haven't found many silvers yet this year, but some of the ones I have found have been memorable.

HH everyone

If you're right that that's the "patched 3" variety, then that's easily a $700+ coin, eh ?

Am looking forward to some coin numismatic buffs to chime in on the ID.

That is an AWESOME shape coin. Low circulation, and the ground was kind to it. Congratz !!

Do you mean 1930s/40s ? Or 1830s/40s ? How old was the school & ballfields ?

I've only found one bust coin, and it was a sharp looking dime. That thing is just spectacular! I hope to find a big one someday, congrats!!!
