1902 Quarter hiding in Gold Country


Recommended Posts

I was out this weekend with my GPX 5000 working a wash in the mountains above Stanton Az. looking for that yellow metal. I got a faint signal in the middle of a 30 ft. wash. I excavated the sand down 12" and hit hard decomposed granite.The signal was blowing my ears off by then.I went down another 4-5" and it was still in the hole.I got out my pin-pointer probe and slowly scratched down another inch. And there it was......... a 1902 Barber Quarter, it is in VERY GOOD condition for being in the ground for all these years.It has very little wear, all of the edge lines and words are like new,a few light scratches,and a little discoloring. What a find, I can only imagine how it got there. Went after GOLD and came home with SILVER. ANOTHER GOOD MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND!!!! Dave
