    Thanks. I walked over that half dollar for 40 years before I caught the detecting bug. I have a Garrett AT Pro.

    Wowee! Was that in your yard?? Maybe you want to quit now
    I found that same date and remember putting a bit of "art" on its face with my shovel.
    Congratulations and welcome to the group!

    Fantastic first hunt. The first day I got my CTX3030, I found a Barber half as well in the first 5 minutes of using the new detector. I had the ATPro for about 1 year prior, never found silver (my fault, not the equipment).

    Always had the bug, when when I found a Barber half, totally into it again. Enjoy the new hobby and keep sending in the finds. Great group of people on this forum.
    Garrett AT Pro, Garrett Waterproof Pinpointer, CTX3030 with 6,11,17" coils.
