Default Sat down on the gold!

On my way home from work, I stopped to hunt for just over an hour.
This is the same site that gave up several tokens and about 10 wheats this weekend, but no silver.
I knew there had to be at least one there.

The first target was the Buff.
After a few memorials, I scored the 10K "pulltab".
It literally rang in at 55-57, just like the previous 100 pulltabs I dug this week.

My last target was the most special.
1887 s Seated dime!
Unfortunately, the shield was gashed, and since it was so shallow, I know it must have been the earth moving equipment that did it.

Happy Hunting Everybody

Nice job on the S mint mark on that Seated dime. And I have not had any pull-tabs look that nice yet this year.

That is awesome. Congrats on the finds. That seated looks really nice, I wish I had some parks near by like that.

Pretty hot little hunt there! Dated Buffalo, Stamped gold, and seated Liberty make a fine looking lineup.
