Metal Detecting My 2nd Barber Quarter



The pictures were not very clear on the video so here is my barber quarter. The face side is nice but the back is stained. The date is 1899 and man was I a happy camper! You can click on the coin pictures for a larger view.
If you're hunting an area and you make a really good find, take a break and calm down a bit. It's only right that your going to be excited, so collect yourself for a moment and then work that area real slow.

Bill that is a beautiful coin! I bet you were very excited when you found it. Is it the oldest coin you've found? If not, what is the oldest one? Gratz again on your silver and GL on your next hunt.
