Item Found: Coin

Location: Northeast

Metal Detector Used: Spectra Series (621-0167)


December 14th, 2013

I was detecting a local field that I've been to many times before. The difference is this year it was planted with potatoes instead of corn. I had been making some good finds just about every time I went there, but I never expected to make a find like this. I had been detecting for a few hours and found some buttons and an Indian Head Cent when I got a nice solid hit. I carefully dug the plug, and could see a little silver at the bottom of the hole. When I reached in and picked the coin up, I couldn't believe my eyes. A 1830 Caped Bust Dime in beautiful condition. Needless to say it made my day! Thanks Whites for making such a fantastic product. I love my DFX.
