First Large Silver 08 Sep 2013 19:21 #852

I located an old map of a fairgrounds that lasted from 1860s - early 20th century earlier this week. It looked too good to be true so we immediately had to go out there. Saturday morning me Coin Magnet and Locator Larry got up and headed to the site which is now woods. As we get there I start walking into the woods and not 2 steps into the woods i dig up an 1861 seated dime! :cheer: The coins then started thinning out as i was popping an indian here and there. No sooner then that out of nowhere my detector screams at me big silver. With anticipation and curiosity i start digging. i pull the plug out and dig once more and out pops this giant disk and i start going crazy! :woohoo: At first i didnt know what is was but getting to cleaning it off it was an 1883 O Morgan Dollar! My first silver dollar ever. Rest of the day was popping a coin here and there. Pretty good day indeed.

Great finds! Looks like you had an awesome day! I have a question...You and your Dad find these old fairground sites pretty often. How are you researching these places? I'd like to look for places like these in my area, but don't know where to start. Could you put me on the right path? Thanks!

Keep up the great hunting. You've got some nice items lately.
