Default New permission giving up the silver

Headed out after work tonight and had a GREAT HUNT by my standards. Getting dark here by about 630 so had about an hour and a half. This is my second trip back to this permission which has a HUGE yard. Probably an acre. Started off slow, didn't even get a good signal for about 30 minutes then finally hit a 12/43, 3", under a tree root of course. Dug down and BOOM BABY, 1901 O Barber Dime. WAHOOOO!!! SILVER !!!!. Stood up and started to swing, instantly got a 12/44, 6" hmm. Dug down and BOOM BABY, 1897 Barber dime. WAHOOO!!! Two silver hunt. Started working that area, walked about 20 feet and got a 12/35, 7", out pops 1897 Indian. Stood up and walked around a huge tree, ANOTHER 12/35, 6". WHAT ? Dug down and out comes a 1897 Indian. I continued around this tree, another 1235, 7", out comes the 1893 Indian. WOW, this has turned into one of my best hunts in a long time. Continued around this tree and got a 12/44 signal, 3", out comes a foreign coin or token. Not sure what it is. Will have to research this one. It came out of the ground shiny so might even be SILVER. It was getting pretty dark by this time so started heading back to the truck. Went about 30 foot, got a 12/45, 9". I am thinking do I really want to dig a 9" target in the dark. I DID, and I sure am happy I did. Out comes an 1878 CC Seated Dime. WHAT, I haven't found a seated in awhile. I am doing my happy dance in the dark !!!!! What a GREAT HUNT !!!. Cant wait to get back there.
I was running the CTX3030 in Coins, Ground Coin, Fast On, +3, Combined Tones.

That is a fantastic hunt Jerry and that's by anybody's standards. Congrats on the small Indian tribe, the 2 barbers and the Seated CC Dime. If you give us a close up on that foreign coin we might be able help identify it. I do understand having a great permission like yours and I'm on edge waiting for your return trip. Trapper

Thanks Trapper, here are some pictures of the foreign coin/token, whatever it is. My camera doesn't take close up pictures well.
