Another First!

Postby OhioCoinHunter » 05 Sep 2010, 20:28

Today I had a two hour window to hunt, so the COMDA hunt was a no-go for me. It takes two hours for me to just drive there and back. So I hunted a site closer to home. I was hunting a grass field and finding a lot of modern coins. The oldest coin was a 1964 memorial cent. Demoralizing. Suddenly lightening struck and I got a high toned signal at 7 or 8 inches deep with the 10x12 sef coil. The numbers on my E-trac were 11-45, 12-46. I knew it was going to be something good. I dug down and pulled this baby out:

1876 Seated Liberty Quarter

My first Seated quarter! That's what I love about this hobby. You can be having one of those crappy days and then - BAM! - lightening strikes and suddenly it's an awesome hunt! :D

As you can see, it was covered with black oxidation. It was black as tar and looked like it came up from the pits of hell. So I put it in the the electrolysis tank for 5 minutes with the battery charger set at 40 amps. When it came out of the tank, the black stuff washed right off.

It's pretty worn but what a find! I'll take it.

Earlier in the week I hunted for a bit and found this pin or badge:

FREMONT YARYAN CO./FREMONT, OHIO
Image

I believe it's an electric company pin.

Here it is cleaned up with electrolysis.

I also found a lot of modern coins and some wheats that I didn't take pictures of or film. Here's a video of the hunts for anyone interested.

Happy Hunting!
Dan
