Locator Larry and myself took a day off Friday to return to the place we hunted the Saturday before. We hunted all day this time and by the end of the day both of us were toast. :side:

I had a record day in terms of barber Dimes found with 8! Several were mint marked and the 1890 P seated dime is exceptionally nice for a field find.

The large token was an interesting find as well. It it about the size of a silver dollar and rang out like a quarter or a large cent. The badge is a souvenir from the 1908 Dallas, Tx Elk Convention.

Dimes Are:

  • 1877 CC
  • 1890 P
  • 1892 O
  • 1898 P
  • 1899 P
  • 1901 P
  • 1902 O
  • 1903 P
  • 1905 P
  • 1905 P


  • Better date Indians are 1865 and two 1868s.

    Holy Cow Keith what a day for you. When was the last time you found 8 Barber Dimes in one day? This is outstanding!
    Life is a coin, you can spend it anyway you wish, but you can only spend it once.

    Outstanding Hunting!!

    What a great location. Its like turning back the clock to 1979!

    Keep hunting that site. You know there has to be a $2.50 or $5.00 gold piece there somewhere!
