Appreciate your reply Bruce, thank you. Being pretty selective of the locations that I'm hunting so I can pretty much insure some success. The clipped Silver was actually #1784. Now need 10 more to reach 1800.

Thank you Jeff for all your kind words. Your right the conversation was great. It consisted a lot of the neighborhood history, the background of the family that lived there 60 years ago and some of my activities from that time. Have some hope to go back this next week to finish that residence and to do another.

Don't worry Trapper, I've missed out on lots of atteboys over the years but it's harder to find those cut ones.

Haha nice!
Jason I have always had that tag for Cut or Clipped Silver just the first time I got to use it. Besides you don't want to be known as the King of Marbles although I know of nobody that is better at recovering them. Being pretty selective as to where I'm doing my hunting of late so it pretty much almost guaranty's some good results. The problem with it though is almost a two hour drive to get there. Trapper

I'm around and detecting, almost to 100 silver coins for the year. Just got tired of posting and trying to keep up. Still post on instagram and the California facebook group.
Appreciate the response on your activities Jason. Seems a lot of the guys here are missing you a bit.

Haha, that was a while ago. I have new improved methods now

Without a doubt Jason is a real magician with his detector. I think he could find Silver just using divinity sticks. He has been a inspiration for many in this hobby and earned the reputation he now has.

Appreciate the comments Bryan, thank you. The Silver is a lot harder to locate these days. I spend way to much time on the road to get it but you know it is still extremely satisfying bringing it home.

Tom I doubt much those boundaries would have any effect on Jason if there is a Silver honey a waiting him. If he ever dries up his territory I am very happy that he lives a lot closer to you than me. Trapper
