    Tearouts and Park Projects Continue - Seated Silver

    This is from multiple hunts Thur, Fri and Sat last week.

    I was fortunate to rescue the two 1876-S seated dimes about twenty feet apart with an IH in between. That was Friday morning, by the end of the day that area was under six inches of gravel.

    Such a vast array of coins and relics! That photo of the tear out makes me drool. How kind of them to remove the top 4 inches of soil for you so you can easily get to the old stuff. :-)

    Two seated dimes in a row must have really got your heart pumping! I'm sure it was hard work going through 6 inches of gravel for them though.

    What is that "Tray Receipt" made out of?

    Congrats on the awesome finds!

    Thanks Tony! The seated dimes got my heart pumping for sure! I was just glad I found them before they filled it all in with the gravel base that afternoon! The tray receipt token is plastic and was an eyeball find, it is from a local high school, not sure how old.
