    Back to a Street Tearout - Seated, Barber, V, IH, etc

    I have been spending nearly a month hunting constantly at the park construction project here in town. I decided for a change of pace this afternoon and drove to a nearby town where there is a larger road project going on since March. I have not been there in nearly a month so I wasn't sure what to expect. I am very glad I made the trip and will probably go back sometime next week. I found these items and a whole big pile of clad.

    Thank you! I think one IH is 1868, the rest are all early 1900's.

    Thank you! I know, crazy on the marbles this year! The fact that the majority of the time I hunt tearouts, they are just there and I guess I just have an eye for them.

    Not just any old seated but an 1853 with arrows! The 1868 Indian Head is a nice find too, as is the Barber Quarter! The conestoga bell cleaned up really well. I think they were often made from a high quality alloy.

    Lifetime totals:
    8 Large Cents, 390 Indian Heads, 2 Two Cent Pieces, 1 Capped Bust Half Dime, 1 Seated Half Dime, 9 Shield Nickels, 67 V Nickels, 122 Buffalo Nickels, 31 War Nickels, 16 Seated Dimes, 128 Barber Dimes, 384 Mercury Dimes, 237 Rosies, 4 Seated Quarters, 15 Barber Quarters, 17 Standing Liberty Quarters, 85 Silver Washingtons, 1 Seated Half, 3 Barber Halves, 16 Walking Liberty Halves
