Thank you! I just go out A LOT. My town has been pounded over the years, and a lot of development over the last 100 years. It really is a challenge to find silver here. All my silvers have come from public areas and curbstrips. Most of my oldest finds have come from old house sites where there is no longer a house. Good luck and happy hunting.

I love the variety of finds. Did you dig a lot of private property or mostly parks and public areas?
