    No silver coins Sunday but I finally found something I had always wanted to find

    I was hoping to pick up a silver or 2 before May but I just could not find anything. I was hindered a bit by the grass as it is costing me several inches of depth now. Just before leaving I did get one really nice signal that turned out to be a Boy Scout ring. I've seen a few that some other guys had found, (Firefighter 43 - Jeff on an outing with me), and I always wanted to find one. I also managed over $5 in clad so that eases the pain a bit.

    Excellent bling and congrats! Finding any silver (modern or old) makes it a good day imo.
