I ended up with 7 seated coins, 6 dimes and one 1854 seated half dime, my first one in 5 yrs of detecting, so that is a real highlight for my 2012 season. Oldest seated was 1838 found in a farm field. I got some nice barbers, several SLQ’s including a semi key 1920-D and a blazing 1929.
Got 4 halves for the year, 3 walkers and one barber, as for other dimes, I got almost twice the mercs as I got rosies which is a good thing. I got 12 sterling rings, 3 sterling thimbles, sterling pocket knife, The large indian ring is my favorite jewelry find this year. Hope I didn’t go overboard on pictures, and hope you enjoy viewing them!!!!
Last year I dug 146 indians, so I smashed that record with 174!!!! Also was a real treat to get 2 flying eagles this year, both from field sites, got a 1857 and a 1858. I took a pic of all the fatty indians, a pic of the 1860′s indians, and then just piled them all together. A few of my 174 are not in the pic, they were already in coin flips and I did not want to tear them out.
As for my dug indian set, I only need 7 more to have a complete dug set. I was able to knock a couple off my need list this yr, getting down to the real tough ones now. But I feel what I have now is pretty good considering I have almost a complete set in 5 yrs of detecting.
Hope you enjoy the photos, I sure enjoyed digging all those indians!!!!
