"Holey Quarters" you have a great find there. Go back and look the area over and find the chain that goes with it, so you can wear it around your neck and let all know that you are a master detectionist.

Gotta love stainless steel washers!

LOL did you take that dirt clod photo thinking it was a silver coin? I bet you were thinking, "Everyone on friendly forum is going to be so jealous of my newest silver coin!"
