First Bust half!!

By: Tim S.

This is my second silver find for the year , an 1836 lettered edge Bust Half!!! This is my first silver half find ever. Got it with my Ace 250, fitted with the 10x14" DD Excelerator search coil. It is by far my best coin find ever. I have hunted this site several times before and only found a lot of junk and some clad as it is next to my old elementary school. This was found near the creek that runs behind the school yard. I will wait until winter and detect along the creek. This site is also located along the route the Union Army took when they left Kinston, N.C. to eventually fight at Bentonville near Goldsboro, N.C. So I should be able to find a few relics also.
