Default A Barber is always welcome

Work has kept me pretty busy lately, so I've only been getting out at most twice a week (some would kill for that kind of time, I know). But my finds have been mostly modern coins and that type of thing. Even the recent silvers have been pretty new, so I was very excited to come up with a Barber dime just as the sun was going down yesterday. The signal was indistinguishable from a clad dime, as opposed to the usual 83-84-85 dance the AT Pro does on silver dimes. I found this where I had previously found an 1897 Barber quarter, so I'm planning on going back and digging everything above iron and seeing what comes up.

Great find!. Ya might want to clean out the iron too, in order to uncover anything that is being masked by it. Just a suggestion. Kinda depends on how many other good sites you have available to you. For me it would a 'fer sure'.
