Another Barber and Indian

I went out Saturday morning and hunted a big open field in the same old park.  I hunted for hours and only found modern coins.  When I did research on this park, there were pictures from 1915 and 1930’s showing large crowds in this area. (Even a rodeo!)  I’m really dumbfounded from not finding any old coins.  That area will just have to be work in progress….  Trying to salvage my day I went back to the area where I hit the Indian and the Barbers.  No old coins.  I was bummed…

So I teamed up with my brother this morning and we hunted several areas. My brother picked up a Merc and a Marine Corps Officers hat pin from the 1950’s.  The hat pin was silver and gold filled and looks really cool.  (That’s coming from an old Army grunt! 🙂  I started getting that sickening feeling of being skunked again!  So we headed back to the area where I found the Barbers and Indian.  There had to be more there.  Sure enough, I hit a 1907D Barber dime and its the best looking Barber dime I’ve found so far.  I found it in some really dense woods that runs on the fringes of that area.  It made my weekend!
