Default Seated Half Dime

I found this today at a park...the park was established in the 50's and this was on about 2" down. I assume someone lost it from a chain. It's pretty thin, but it is the first silver I found.

Wait, what? Nobody finds a seated for their first silver coin. You must be doing something wrong. Congrats on a very nice find!
