Thanks! It's pretty wild that this one big pile of old dirt has turned out a small handful of coins, and that included two barbers, two buffalo, and some wheaties. More good coins than clad and barely any junk. I guess that's due to the original depth of that dirt. If I go back and find a Barber quarter then I wouldn't blame somebody for not believing me. That's not going to stop me from keeping an eye on it and trying!

Interesting that the tarnish is exactly the same on both coins. Not sure why because I doubt they're using any chemical fertilizers. But, the soil where they were originally located stays pretty damp.
