My First Barber

12 Sep

My first ever Barber coin is a heavily tarnished 1899 Barber quarter.

I found it at a set of apartments downtown. I have hunted these apartments a couple of times before and I just knew there were old coins there.

This quarter was just below the surface. I am not surprised at the shallow depth however, because I found it on a slope and water has been washing off the dirt over the coin for God knows how long. And I am so proud I did not scratch it!

The AT Pro identified it correctly as a quarter, with a Target Id of 87-88.

Not pretty but awesome anyway
