Default $350.00 less CLAD to find

Greetings fellow members,

Since it is cold and snowing here in eastern PA, I decided to count/weigh my total coinage for year end 2016. These coins are only for approximately six months and not the full year. I got back into detecting when I got my new analog detector about six months ago after taking a three year sabbatical from the world of MDing...I know my mistake.

Although, the coins are nearly entirely clad but still treasures to me. I have found more rings and jewelry these past six months than I have in multiple years. Everything from gold rings to costume jewelry, US dollar coins and many very rare and collectable pulltabs.

Based upon weight conversions my grand total is approx. $350. Happy MDing to all in 2017...and may we all find our pot gold...soon.

Default like the idea if weighing the finds

Where is the weight on pulltabs & bottle screw tops, and pry off beer bottle tops , i am sure it was a big plastic tub.

I sold a coffee can full of found lead fishing weight scrap bycatch at the Wifes garage sale this year to some old damn guy..I bet it weighed 10lbs...I got $8 for it!! I dont know who took advantage of who, but we were both happy, it made me feel good to unload it, and it was sort of funny to see the look on my Wifes face as he handed me the money!...She was sitting there all pist off trying to move her tupperware and those damn beanie babies!...

Actually, I usually place the aluminum canslaw with my weekly recycling bin but the copper, lead and brass goes to the salvage yard for a few extra bucks. Sometimes I find more copper scrap than I do coins.

KT looked at that 9 pounds of pennies and His Royal Back started aching! Ye Gads! But like you, KT cannot pass up a strong signal, penny or not! A unique way of listing your totals! It was enlightening! And a great total for only 1/2 year MDing! Royal Wishes of continued success in your MDing efforts!

I'm right down the road in West Norriton. At least I know where all the clad went in my hunting grounds.

Nice work!

Hopefully I learned a thing or two from you last time and I won't be leaving you ALL the quarters from now on!
