1842 Seated Half (XF 40)

XF 40 I guess is a little generous on this baby, given the tarnish, but a seated half is still a pretty rare find (at least for me), and its an old one, 1842.  Hard to believe this was found at 7 inches in a public park.  Sometimes it pays to be in the right place at the right time.

Odd thing was, I was pretty confident the place had been hunted out — 2 or 3 hours of not even much clad, then I got a wheatie, and started focusing on that zone, then a rosie, and then this.  I remember when I first saw it, I thought it was some sort of token — it took quite a few seconds to realise what it was, then do the happy dance.

Found: 19-Jun-2011; Location: park/school; Machine: E-Trac
