Default First War Nickel FTY and first 925 ring FTY

Had an interesting day. Saw a huge old home on a map and wanted to check it out. Found it, but was vacant. Search starts now for owner!

Hit a park I got an Injun and Merc at last week. Spent two hours there. Not one coin or Relic. Headed home and stopped at old reliable.

Silver #7 was 43P war Nick. Also got my first silver ring of the year and a wheat. Saved my day, lol

Thanks OD! Wow, I can’t believe with all your finds you haven’t dug a war nickel. Then again I’ve been digging on and off for 43 years this year and no large cent! Maybe we can get both this spring if we meet up to dig.

Congrats on the war nickel and silver ring! Good luck finding the owner of the vacant property. It sounds like a promising spot!
