    More Silver Than Normal

    I have some woods sites lined up but I'm waiting until the fall when the bees die...and I'm still waiting on the second cut of the fields so I've been hitting parks.
    That buckle is too light for tack and looks old.
    The '24 Merc is a looker!
    Thanks!

    Isn't it crazy that there's still so much silver left in public parks? Especially silver quarters! That 1924 Merc is a real looker, Drew!

    Glad to see you are keeping those detecting muscles in shape Drew. That is a lot of shiny stuff. Not sure what that mushroom is. Maybe a northern tooth.
    Oldest find: 5,000 year old copper spearhead
    Oldest coin: 1699 William III halfpenny
    Purdiest coin: 1832 Capped Bust quarter
    Coolest find: USA button with blue threads still on shank

    Nice finds. Really like all the silver but that dime is especially clean. I'll be glad when winter gets here. That is our prime hunting season down here in south Georgia. But, I am going at daybreak tomorrow for a couple hours.
    My wife does all the driving, I just hold the steering wheel!

    Sure is, Jared...our horrible dirt has no power over the all mighty silver! Copper, on the other hand doesn't do well up here. Midwest seems to have better dirt. Thanks!

    As you know, the silver is there but you have to go slow and be patient. I've been working in 5kHz of late. I have to dig a few more bottle caps than multi-frequency but it's worth it when I hit the deep silver. Thanks, Tony!

    Thanks, Jeff. My wife agrees with you, she says it's a Northern Saw Tooth. There was a large mushroom there last year too. I think I posted a pic. I had a really good colonial hunt yesterday...I'm going back tomorrow morning and will post when I get home. Thanks!
