Kac found one of these and we discussed small motto vs. large motto.  Look carefully at the inset photos (upper right) here and see if you can determine.  Either way a great find (particularly the condition) but hoping for your sake it's the small motto.

Great find. Yours looks like a large moto, same as ones I have found but in awesome condition!

Coins like that in that era you may want to dig your folded ring tabs as they can be flying eagles and dig the smaller hits for Trimes and other small hard to find coins. 2 cent in the area is a really good sign for others.

Appreciate the comments fellas. 
could tell on the spot it was in nice shape and used minimal cleaning which was fingernail scratching followed by careful use of Andres pencil and finally a nose oil rub and pants shine. 
procedure I use on non silver coins.

Very nice find. I don't think a better could be found. I've never found one but my buddy found one in very heavy iron. I had been over that spot many times and didn't hear it. He was using a Minelab Advantage.

      I went back to an area that I had been over with my 3030 at least two times, this time with the NOX 800 and came away with this nice Barber. It wasn't deep, just next to a piece of trash too close for the CTX to separate.

      So I've been getting a lot of clad coins with both the Equinox and the Vanquish 440 in the local parks, but even in the older ones, silver coins have escaped me for a couple of months now.  In between thunderstorms this afternoon, I hit the neighbor's parking strip, and in less than ten minutes, I pulled two silvers and a wheatie!  My first silver quarter, AND my first Canadian silver. The quarter is pretty trashed, but I'm glad just the same!
      Felt good to break the slump!

      Most I found and a few were collected.

      A mile stone in my metal detecting hobby, my first wheat penny. I found it today in my yard near my driveway, at the edge of my property. I though it would be a memorable penny(just like the rest of the pennies I found in my yard) but it turned out to be wheat. A 1942 D to be exact. The house was built in 1940, so it was there most likely ever since. I am glad to have it. I cleaned the dirt off with dawn and a paper towel. Do you think it needs to be cleaned more or is it nice the way it looks?

      Hit the beach for a few hours and got some silver for the pile. Conditions weren’t good which seems to be the norm lately since there have been no waves. All my silver was found in the dry sand after giving up on the wet. I don’t know if the stone on the silver ring is a ruby but it gave me 5 bars on my diamond tester.  Thanks for looking and happy hunting.
