That's awesome! I've yet to find any halves while detecting, let alone a sweet Benjamin. I'd like to add one of those to my own collection. Nice going!

Very nice - one friendly suggestion back off a little with the camera so it can focus, then crop the picture down and resize it. Franklins are not found that often. Congrats.
