I live near the old carson city trail in california. I been detecting 20years and found every pick axe and shovel and square nail ever lost durin the gold rush. Found maybe 15 coins of dubious quality and value. Well 2 weeks ago i went to an old spot and found this 1873cc quarter with arrows. its been PGSC genuine with rimdmg (minor in my opinion) xf-details. I would show you a photo but i dont know how to post photos on this forum

Wow. I just looked at the Red Book. Incredible. I know nothing about these coin grading services but I've seen some other posts where their coins came back as having "environmental damage". I think it's a good thing they did not grade yours that way? Regardless of value it's in great shape and I congratulate on an amazing key date find. We rarely find CC mint marks here in new England, and I have yet to unearth even one. Congrats!
