Jr and I met up with Shawn on Sunday to take another stab at the fairground field hoping this time to find the grandstand area. After about an hour or so of walking and hunting long distances without any hits we thought we would go back to the original area to see if we could scare out another seated.

We it turned out that there are several more in there! :cheer:

I think I won the prize for the most worn coin so far. At least it's silver and a seated! And also the prize for the most trashed Indian. I'm sure it's an 1877 but I just can't get to the date on it. :blink:

The other Indian was much nicer. We know the fair lasted until 1894 at least but not sure of the end date. From the wear on this 93 Indian it looks to me like it was dropped after 1900. Same could be (and probably is) true for the dime.

As usual, nice finds Keith. Come to think of it, I think the place is loaded 1877 injuns. I am sure all of mine that I can't see date are 77's. :P

Worn or not, at least you found a seated.
Those things are somewhere between rare to non-existent around here.
Nice Indian too.

Nice day it looks like Keith. With that old seated, what are your plans with it? Do you keep a coin that looks like that or do you wait until you get few hundred lbs. :lol: and sell them for the going rate? Just curious.
Life is a coin, you can spend it anyway you wish, but you can only spend it once.

I'll put it in the bag with the rest of the really worn silver coins. One of these days I'll sell it in a group with several other low grade seated dimes.

After checking ebay however I might want to just list it by itself.

This badly worn 1840s dime is listed at $11 with $2.72 shipping :S !
