Default Viv la france ! BIG SILVER

Happy Easter, and it was....
Hunting a long gone school site now a bean field today.
I've hunted there a few times before finding early date wheats ,& indians... 1880s & early date mercury dimes ..maybe oldest mid 1930s
Today blew me away.....
Also giving me my oldest coin dug .. aside from a chinese coin a few years ago...
Another silver dollar.......
Only foreign.....
1844 5 frances
I posted 3 videos on another site
Detecting the heartland sorry for the language... But man.. I was excited!!! Never thought I'd break my oldest date ... 56 half or a 53 gold 1$ ... Less I went east of the Mississippi...
Happy Easter All!
