Sweet coin. Are you sure that scratch is from you??? Usually if you nick a coin, the inside of the scratch is a very bright silver. Yours looks like it has toning inside the scratch. Or is that just lighting I am seeing?

Congrats on the seated. Awesome coin. I was wondering myself if it was an older scratch from the coloring. Best of Luck!

The pic makes it looked toned..to the naked eye, looks fresh..and was sticking out the side of the plug. Have not looked under a loop yet, and my eye site is pretty bad, lol.

You California hunters are killing it with your rare early -S mint coins!  Come to think of it, if I pulled out something that nice the excitement would (literally) kill me.

As far as the damage, you are being honest which is better than some recognized 'experts'.  It can be tough when you don't know exactly where the coin is (edge coins in particular) and when the ground is hard and rocky.  Even when trying your best, sometimes the tool just bites yah (or more appropriately stated "bites the find").

Don't beat yourself up.  Be proud of that one.

Another fine example of "S" sweetness.  Could be for Seated, Shiny, Stunner, Sensational, Scratched🤔. But I prefer "S" for San Francisco and that is one fine lady.   Even the old pros nix a coin on occasion.

      Between work and projects I've managed to get out on a few hunts. I bought my buddy an equinox 800 since he has been kind enough to let me run all around his ranches as if I own them myself. He has showed some interest in detecting...he thinks he's going to find a 1 pound gold nugget . After spending some time showing him how it works...I'd mark a target and then have him go over it and then dig it...he started to get the hang of it. So on our second outing he goes and finds a 1855 seated quarter (like Deathrays) but not in nearly as good condition. He was stoked and I wish i had brought my camera with me so I could get a pic of him smiling and holding the coin. 
      Been hitting some other locations near where I live. Old homesites and street tear outs. Day before yesterday was a quick but pleasant hunt. Dug the standing liberty and put it in my pocket so it would not get banged up in the pouch. I never look at items much in the field but wait till I get home. I was glad I put this coin in my pocket. I'm going to have to get it looked at just to make sure but I think it's the real deal.
      If anyone knows what the sun god thing was? kinda cool digging it and have that smiling back.
      HH to you all

      First hunt in a LONG time; I was happy that I was able to prove to myself that I haven't totally forgotten how to run the Equinox!
      Oh -- the 1916 Merc?  The mint mark -- if there was one -- was worn off...  😞   LOL!

      I was in Spokane Washington recently and the weather was finally nice and some of the snow had melted and l had a couple hrs. to kill so I grabbed the xterra 705 with a CORS strike multi freq. coil and went to work in a vacant lot in a old neighborhood the city had cleared of houses. about 20 min. into it this barber dime popped out of the ground. The lot was extremely trashy , l ran the 705 in 7.5 khz, discriminate all metal with 99 tones. I was getting iron tones every couple inches but still managed to pull this coin with the big coil. My first silver coin of 2019.  Just wanted to share . Best of luck this year to everyone on the forum !

      Groundscanner and I stumbled upon a spot and I pulled these three 1850 era half dimes out. I’m guessing the flat piece of lead with the “X” scratched in it is some type of game piece. Pretty good day. I was running the Nox on field 2. Thanks for looking!

      Went to a park in a nearby town for the first time. I’ve been told it’s totally hunted out. Well, someone missed this 1907 V nickel. It was positioned a couple inches from a piece of trash metal. The 6-inch coil on my Nox 600 sniffed it out, no problem.

      Well, after reading about the high number war nickels I finally got one at an old fairground in Kansas. Hits a solid 21.I was sure surprised to see a nickel in the hole. It's a 1943 s.
