    My first hunt of 2019

    Back in the first part of January we had some pretty mild weather and the ground thawed for a short period. I was itching to get out so I headed to my go to spot, the old grove. As usual it did not disappoint me. I managed to find my first 3 silvers of the year and one Buffalo nickel. The first silver of the year was a 1909 Barber dime. I followed that up with 36 and 17 Mercs. The Buffalo was is a 1916. It sure felt good to get out for a January hunt but it didn’t last long before we were back in the deep freeze. Good luck to everyone in the new year.
