Well, I can hardly believe it, but I think we've got our first reset/restart...

I just dug silver....and I'm ecstatic!!! Pretty sure it's my first ever Barber Quarter!! And of all places, I dug it at a local park!!! Don't know the date yet, because the front side is caked with dirt, but I don't think anybody guessed earlier than a 1920s quarter.

Good grief, I didn't expect much of anything out of this park today, let alone a Barber quarter! But I also got an 1893 IHP about 30 minutes ago, also... Looks like the local park still has some great goodies!!!

Anyways, the contest is officially restarted at this point. All previous guesses are void, and everyone is free to re-enter per the same original rules!

Thanks to everyone who's participating, good luck, and I hope you're having as much fun as I am!!

I swear I was deciding between a Barber quarter and barber dime and I picked an early barber dime. Oh well. Congrats!

What!? Seated quarter? Nobody would have ever guessed a pre 1892 quarter. Big congrats! I'd wouldn't blame you for putting it in the eye popper discussion.
