My first silver dollar
My friend gave me permission to detect around his property yesterday.He believes his house was built in the late 1800s.After searching the front yard for about 2hrs,finding only penny`s(7 of which were wheaty`s)and was about to give up.I decided to check the back yard.Starting under the old oak tree next to the trash cans,I got a good signal,I thought it to be a quarter.The ground was hard packed dirt with gravel.Much to my surprise at about 1 inch down,out popped a 1877 Trade dollar.The dirt wiped off well but the coin is well colored.I always thought that silver came out clean(all my other ones have).After researching,I`ve found that collectors prefer the tarnished ones more than the shiny ones.Anyways that was the best find so far.I have to go back someday soon with my other detector,which goes a little deeper but finds more trash.I`ll keep you posted.Thanks for your site.It`s fun to share the nice finds.
