I'm so happy I went out to the woods. We walked all over the woods hunting. I found a lot of old shotgun shells but no coins. We moved again and again, finally we went over to one of my secret areas and within about 15 min I found a 100 year old BARBER QUARTER 1908o!!! When I first got the signal it was strong so I called my buddy over to check it out, he got a low tone, so I checked it again. I got a low foil tone too... What the heck is going on?? Then I checked it again and it was a strong silver signal, my SE was screaming at me. It was under neath a small fallen tree's roots down like 4 or 5 inches deep. The first thing I found was a crumpled up foil ball, that was the low tone that threw us off. With that trash out of the way I swept the coil over again, this time it was loud and clear!!! I pulled out a bug clump of dirt, I crumpled it to break it up and I saw the top of Ms. Liberty's head looking at me!!! I was so excited that I just kept saying "Its a Barber, Its a Barber"!!! Well here is the pix, I also have video of it too, I am a total dork, just watch the video and see... LOL

I am still a little shaky, man what a feeling!!!!

Here it is after I washed it up.






Here is my days finds. The coke bottle is like from the 70's or so, its thick glass, but the writing is just painted on, but I'll keep it. The little food jar I kept because it has embossing on the bottom. It says: Aug. 5th 1919 Pat.
