Default Hey... 12˘ is 12˘...!

The 1900 IH was 4˝ inches deep... (checked the hole again)... the 1901 IH was 5˝ inches deep... (checked the hole AGAIN)... and the Barber was 6˝ inches deep... and I needed all 3 of 'em for my progressive collection...!
(Yes, I checked the hole a third time JIC, but nothing.)
Anyway... day's been made. Time to enter 'em in the comp database, give 'em a hot bath in some hydrogen peroxide, pat 'em down, give 'em a kiss, an' lock 'em away in the safe.

You dig one hole and get more than I do digging 10 holes!

Very cool finds!

WTG buddy! Yeah, it might be 12 cents, but oh boy, what a 12 cents it is. Nice going.

Wow Krom!

That sure is the lazy man's way to metal detect.
Most people would have to dig a dozen or more holes to get those three coins.


That Barber is as pretty as the day it left the mint. Congratulations.

Nice finds, Krom Maestro. Levman once found a 1900 penny, a 1900 nickel, and a 1901 quarter in the same hole. I guess "The Pocket Spill God" fits his character perfectly. Once, I believe, I hope I am not doing him an injustice, he found 8 Wheaties, 2 1947 nickels, 1 Buffalo nickel, and a 1947 dime in the same hole.

Now that's the way to line them up in a row. Good going Krom.

As rare as they are (for me, anyway), they're sweeter than sugar, Megaman!

Gotta love them one hole wonders, they make alot of cents.
The only multiple strike worth mentioning for me was my very first silver, a 1948 quarter and a merc snuggled right next to it.

I got 3 barbers now, Hank (in a few years), but what I'd really like to find (well, we all want what we haven't dug yet, right?) is a seated lib like your avartar (what a rush that musta been!).
(Ho-hummm!) Some day, I hope...!
