Default First Seated coin

A a digging buddy of mine who goes by hilltopdoc on here has been hitting an old public area and getting some silver. It has been very hot and dry this summer so in order to not damage the grass to bad he has been hitting the spot selectively. Cherry picking and not digging many holes per outing. He has gotten some silver for his trouble. He got his first Seated coin ever this past Sunday. A Seated quarter at that. Congrats Jeff those are tough to get!

Photos are from multiple hunts at the site.

Congrats to you bud on the seated quarter Longbow. A seated has been # 1 on my list going on 4 years now. Looks like a nice Barber quarter in the pics also. Some fine saves there. Good luck, Mark

its me! i have issues with posting photos on my MacBook. ill let longbow62 post them. this is a local courthouse lawn. i found the barber and other silvers there. we think i also found a totally roached out shield nickel. the EMI was bothersome with the ctx3030 so i ground balanced and restarted it. the signal was scratchy at best but reproducible. i quit as soon as i found it as i knew i wouldn't better the days find. i also picked up some clad and a 1927 wheat. i can't wait to return.
