Thread: Seven More Silver Coins

  1. #1

    Seven More Silver Coins

    We are having some great weather this week, and today was turning out to be especially pleasant. It won't last of course, so I took advantage of it and headed back to the park to see if I could manage another silver or two. I did better than expected, picking up another seven silver coins, two Washington quarters, three mercury dimes, and two Rosies.

    A 1934 mercury dime is hiding in this clump of soil.



    And a 1946 Rosie peeked at me from this one



    When I hit on this quarter I sent Epi-hunter a text message before breaking the clump to let her know I needed one more silver to reach the mark. Then I got a shock when a mercury dime fell from the clump while breaking it; a 1936 mercury dime had been stuck to the quarter! I already had my 375th silver coin and didn't even know it.



    Here they are, showing the marks from when they were stuck together.



    And here is all of the silver.



    There were more wheat cents too, as well as a 1942 Canadian cent.



    HH!

    Geez! How blessed can you be to live in a silver infested area like that! Dude, I'm surprised you don't have argyria! Better check your finger tips...

    I'm just picking on the leftovers. Seriously, this park has been hammered, yet it continues to yield the silver.

    I don't know Dan, perhaps you need to give the cellar holes a breather. You have enough coppers.

    Yeah, and my response was, Un-freaking believable! Silver coins fall out of his clumps of dirt in multiples

    I told him I was going to raffle off his E-trac on the forum, I don't think he needs it. He can use one of those $14.99 Wild Planet Kid Quest detectors

    Congrats on making your goal. Now you need a new goal

    Yeah, your response was funny.

    I think I'm done with goals. There will be snow on the ground before I know it.

    That is un-freaking-believable.

    I wish I could afford the plane ticket up there. I would pay just to follow you for a day and listen / watch to what you are digging. Minelab needs YOU as a spokesman instead of Andy Sabich. I think you could teach him a few things.

    Nice digs. Funny that I have found 1 silver coin for every 7 you have found this year and I still think I'm having a great year!

    Thank you for the very kind words Jason.

    In truth, though, I am really just a detectorist who has learned from his mistakes, and has gained some experience as a result. Perhaps, too, I enjoy my hobby a tad too much.

    Oh, that's just brutal ~ texting like that while you're out in the field....
    I'd be havin' a fit if Joe texted me stuff like that while I was at work.
    Guess it's a good thing he doesn't know how to text.
