1894-S Barber Half (G4)

This is the third barber half I’ve found (at the time of writing), in the span of less than a year (so I guess they are more common than I thought), but it is the only one from the 1800s that I’ve found.  1800s silver is special; 1800s big silver is extra special.

It was about 6-7 inches deep, right on the edge of a field.  I thought it was going to be a silver quarter when it rang up.

(And yes, I’ll always feels snubbed that this coin didn’t make the American Detectorist banner (and I would come to feel more of that), especially considering some of the coins that did.  Well, it is what it is, I guess these things shouldn’t matter so much, and they really don’t, at least not to me, but I do need to mention this, and move on).
