      How much of that did you get to keep after auction fees and income taxes?

        I got 👍

      Auctions always do this in the last 45 seconds. I found a slag glass lampshade for 10.00 at a St. Vincent De Paul store for 10.00. It sold for 620.00. A pair of matching early 1900 wall sconces I picked up at that same store for 25.00 sold for 870.00. Both auctions looked bad until those last 45 seconds.

                it's why you detect - dig, come up with nothing much and keep going, week after week after week, month after month until you hit that unexpected miracle. One Coin worth $6,251.oo or maybe half a million. You just don't know until you get out there and search.

                    I magnet fish and i found a really old double barrel shotgun. Last week that was my best find so far. Still trying to clean it without using chemicals that will mess it up.

                      I get the feeling these coins were planted they look too shiny and new to be underground all these years you would think they would have been deteriorated. Regular coins that have been going through circulation for many years hand-to-hand look worse and the coins that are underground

                        My dad has one in his coin collection. He got it from his father who got it from his father. Lived in the San Francisco bay area back then. I gotta stay on his good side to stay in the will😆

                          so what should a person do if they found... I mean, find a seated liberty quarter 1856 and a flying eagle cent 1858 at a CW battlefield site?

                                $6,251 is indeed a lot of money for a quarter, but this is a very rare coin and the undisputed "King" of the Barber Quarter series. Without the surface damage from being buried in the ground, this piece could easily have brought in the $25,000 to $30,000 range. No kidding!
                                (Being a life-long coin collector, I could never have parted with it even at that price!)

It say's Extremely Rare , which yes it is.... it's the only Al Capone quarter like it..... I guess that's my nick name for it since it has a scar on it's face ..... Here's the coin .....

Novelette to be exact LOL....... i went thru all the CCF pages on your thread . Plus a couple other links pertaining to your coin that other members threw in there. I am a member of CCF also .......

                                                                            I can't believe there were doubters on there...... I noticed they didn't speak up when you posted is was authentic...... I am going to try and find the other forum that had the naysayers also.... It's going to be an interesting read .... I am on different forums, but not by the same name since they were already's amazing there are 2 Cajun Coin Hunters.......
