Default Lucky Seated right at dusk

Last evening I was hunting with very little luck and was waiting on my hunting partner to finish as it was getting dark. He was a few hundred yards away and I am so glad he didn't quit when I was ready to go- I never would have found the two silver coins. He was finding a number of dropped quarters as I was hunting an area that held far fewer, but older coins. Sunset was 6pm and it was overcast so at 6:19 when I received a surface 31 reading on the nox I bent over and felt with my finger- The 1945 D quarter was barely under the grass. Unbelievable! 10 minutes later I saw the lights from his car go on so I knew he was coming back. I turned to walk towards my car and hit a nice 27-29 reading. I found the 1875 seated dime down about 5 inches. Had to use the pin point light to see it. Nice 15 minute ending to the 2 1/2 hour hunt.

Default 1916 Barber and 1944 Mercury

Went back to the same spot I was at late last evening where I found the seated dime. This time I found a Merc and a Barber. Almost had a trifecta. LOL

Those late finds are the surprises you will never forget. Sometimes I pretend to leave a site and start walking back to the truck hoping for one of those last minute bucket listers.

Default Wow

The Merc and the Barber are in really good condition. Just think, you might not have gone back there if you had not found the seated the night before. You did get the trifecta, it just took you two days. I guess that don't count. Oh well, you got some mighty good finds there.
HH everyone

Nice silver haul, Charlie! That Seated is awesome, and crazy that the quarter was so shallow. Itís funny how often those last few minutes turn up the best finds of a hunt. Iím at the point that I always swing my way back to the car...which usually gets me in trouble, because I always end up late for wherever Iím supposed to be next

And the Barber and Merc made for a cool ďstretchedĒ trifecta. Mercs are my favorite dime design, so I always enjoy seeing those come out, and Barbers are always a treat just for their age and the era they represent. Great hunting!

Thanks Ben, I also like the Mercs alot, but for some reason the Barber fronts are my fav.
