    November Digs

    I have gotten in very little hunting this year compared to previous years; mostly because a large portion of time over the summer was spent helping my parents move from their long time home in New England to upstate NY near me. They finally completed the move in October and were mostly settled by November. So my dad and I were able to get in a number of hunts in November and he has proved to be quite the good luck charm for me. In 16 hunts I was able to pull 24 silver coins - all dimes! I also scored 4 silver rings, 4 Buffalo nickels, and a few nice token. I'm not sure what the odds are of finding 24 silver dimes without a quarter, nickel, or half in the mix but I'm not complaining.

    Only 23 of the 24 dimes are in the pictures below, the reason for which is a good story that I will post separately.

    Happy hunting!

    Congrats again Matt for an outstanding ability to get those deep dimes out of the ground. I wish I had that ability because I shudder to think how many dimes I may have left in the ground at my sites back in southern NH not to mention that I don't stand a chance of finding them when we detect together.

    Wow...24 silver dimes. Great to see you're able to spend some quality time with your Dad. Worth more than all the silver you'll ever pull from the ground. Congrats indeed.
