Path in the woods gives up 1837 Bust half dime – Metal detecting find

It was a beautiful day out and I decided to detect next to an old picnic grove area where I had found multiple coins from the early 1900’s and late 1800’s. There was a small trail that led off into the woods and I decided to focus on that area.

After getting a good signal next to the path I dug out this 1837 Bust half dime at about 4″ deep. I think it was on edge because I had trouble pinpointing it. When I saw the silver and the size I knew I had found a good one. The forest was so tranquil and I stood there in awe like I had won a million dollars. I even took a picture of where I dug it =)
