    Sunday afternoon

    Familiar town not quite hunted out. Surprised with a two quarter spill, one being my long sought after type 1 standing liberty!

    Thanks Don. You probably remember I was scared to death I was going to rub it or look at it wrong! Already in plastic so I'm not tempted to clean it any further!

    2 quarters in the same hole. I’m just so happy I didn’t hit it with the shovel! Thanks.

    That SLQ is spectacular, Tim! WOW! That spill must have happened in 1917 because the dates wore off of those SLQs in no time. That's one of the nicest examples I've seen on this forum.

    You know you've had a great hunt when an 1897 barber Quarter comes in second place.

    Wonderful silver Tim! Never found an SLQ myself, though alas I only hunt really old field and wood sites.

    Vermont relic hunting, one swing at a time.

    Some day I'm going to your neck of the woods and find some colonial silvers. For now I have to settle for the 20th century LOL. But thanks!
