1908 half dollar

Post by leslie(nova scotia) » Mon Dec 04, 2017 9:52 pm

Navy Davy and I ventured back to the 1000 acres that I had secured. After talking to the farmer, who much to my surprise it was learned that I had taught his sister back in the 80's.....small world.

Darn cold to say the least with Niagara Nose taking control of ND and I. First field gave up a few relics and we returned to the first field that we had done on the first visit. Nd was swinging the Omega today and rapidly hit some buttons.....then the grin and out came the Newfoundland 1908 50 cent piece!
We dug for a tad more with the extremities beginning to freeze. Managed a nice marble (eyeballed of course) along with a 1916 large cent and a buckle.

That's a very nice half dollar. ::g Not a bad day at all considering that you're supposed to be hibernating by now.

Respect on the weather front. After my trip out on Friday in weather that would freeze the udders of the cows I can only imagine what your conditions could do to a man +}]

Love the coin and adore the marble ::g
