I found this 1877 Indian at a small park in Illinois in on Saturday July 20th, 2002 at 8 AM. I couldn't believe it when I found it and went to the truck to check it out. While I was there the Mayor came up and said I couldn't hunt there any more. :blink: :ohmy: I had to spend the day somewhere else hunting. Of course I thought there would be several more of these right next to that one and I really didn't want to leave :laugh:

About 2 years later there was a new Mayor. I called him and he said it was fine. :woohoo: I never did find another 1877 Indian cent but I did come up with some other nice ones from there including more Indians, barber dimes and seated dimes and I'm sure there are more left! It's a VERY small park with good deep black dirt. Probably was a stage coach stop back in the 1850s - 1880s.
