When I read some of the comments and then read yours, I looked up the IH on the internet and I am blown away.

I had no idea about it and thought it was just another coin. I know I need help with the churches around here as I know I am missing a lot of targets. I need to learn more about my 800 and become more proficient with it.

I just wonder what I have missed out on and how much more is around this area.

Most of the churches around here were built around the 1850's and have not changed much since.

Thanks for the heads up on the IH as I probably would have gotten taken on it at a dealer that i sell to. He buys the coins and I know he is taking advantage of me and others.

Thanks for the support.

Keep clearing out that trash, and more should emerge.

I have already dug over 3 pounds of trash already and it gets really old after a while.

However you are correct in saying that I have to get rid of it all to get to the good stuff.

One of these days I will find a ring or some gold and then I will feel better.

I found a very nice Indian Head penny in great condition. This IH is in better shape than the 1889 that I had found in my back yard several months ago and is the older brother of it as it is a 1877.

I was thinking "hey, what??!!"  Were you trying to play this deadpan and see what kind of reactions you got?  Either that or you hadn't photoed your find and just went out on Google images a grabbed a 'random' one, not bothering to match the correct date.

Glad someone woke up.  😁

Tim, I think you may have just found a Vanquish 540 (equivalent).  Check eBay sold listings to get an idea of what people are willing to pay.  I don't know what yours grades but it looks like the ground was very kind to it.

Well done!

I don't have a cell phone to take pictures with and used my camera after I got home and cleaned them up a little.

I had no idea that it was worth any more than the1889 I found in my yard until Tometusns stated that it was a good coin.

      Found this with Equinox 800 on a early site..

      After a bit of a drought of finding cool coins with the Equinox, I found another V nickel detecting in the neighbors parking strip in between thunderstorms.  It was pretty worn and pitted, and not of any numismatic value, so I cleaned it up a bit.

      Went to the same location where I had 42 quarters. I used the same settings, but this time I swung the Samurai sword 15" coil. I had a bit more time today (11:20-1:20), but the humidity was really oppressive. No mosquitoes this time because they don't even want to be out in the Florida heat!
      I believe 55 quarters is a first for me in 2 hours. If I were not the one going up and down all those times, I would not believe these coins all came from 2 hours of detecting. Most were within the first few inches, so they were a quick dig. With all the stuff dug, that is an average of about 1 item a minute. I think I know what I can save up for...knee replacemnts!
      I left a scad of dimes in the ground, so there are still plenty of targets for my friend. 😁
      The bracelet was a STRONG 9-10. It looked amazing coming out of the ground, but it was not silver. There was also an iPod Nano, but my son snagged it in hopes of cleaning it up.
      Now, time to focus on the jewelry!

      I had a rather awesome hunt today, scored a barber grand slam and a dime trifecta... Started the day hunting after a 6 1/2 drive to my old stomping grounds. First site gave up the barbers, rosie and a wheat.....
      Ending the day by doing a test hunt at  a backup spot, looks like both are going to produce very nicely. Scored 2 wheats and the merc in 30 minutes....
      Found the barbers with the Equinox 800 and the others with the CTX....

      My wife kicked me outta the house for 8 days....so...I did some research close to where I grew up and arrived today for nothing but digging, eating and sleeping

      First spot was across from the old railroad depot next to a dried up man made lake from back in the day.....

      Second hunt was an old city park.....

      i am having fun experimenting with Equinox settings, but ever learning the tones, and feeling a bit more confident.  Late 1700s farm house with tons of modern trash gave up the 1901 Barber dime, sterling watch back, and Philadelphia & Reading railroad button.  the rings and Rosie were from a natural spring swimming area.  The 1905 Barber dime i got yesterday from a large field I have been hunting for about 7 years.  Two Barbers within 2 weeks is rare for me....then topped them all off today with this 1853 half dime.  My first one of those, and so nice to fill another slot in my Type book of dug US coins.  been a really sweet year with finding coins.   thanks for looking.  HH
