Thread: First silver for the year....

    Cool First silver for the year....

    But what a silver!!

    Hi everybody! It's been a while for me to get something good up on the forums.

    I can count on one hand how many times I've been out to hunt since January. The hunts I did were pretty crappy.

    But the other day I hit a big park that's been pounded for years by everyone. I did a coil swap with a hunting buddy. I swapped my stock Teketics Omega coil for a NEL coil. He said I'd see a difference and I'd get a couple inches more in depth.

    Lo and behold, I flipped over the plug and there she was. A 1901 Barber quarter!! I knew I had a silver when I saw the patina but was shocked to get a Barber. I hadn't found a Barber all last year so it was sure nice to have this one be my first for 2015.

    Thanks for looking. Happy hunting everyone!
