Default Silver Fix

Been hunting farm fields lately finding coppers but no silver. Today I hit a one room Schoolhouse site and scored a couple of silvers. Didn't realize Barbers were minted in Denv er as I've only found O or no mint mark varieties.

Nice! Hard to find a one-roomer school anymore that hasnít been pounded. Quite a few in my area but barren. Saw a father and son team hunt the same one for an entire week!

Congrats on the dimes which are in really nice shape. Barber Dimes also can have an "S" mint mark on them. The ones I've found were all no mint marked ones from the Philadelphia mint. I've hunted one room schoolhouses around here and never got anything good.
