Default Silver Pocket Spill

The target sounded too big and good to be true. Lifted the coil a few inches off the ground and the signal faded. Ok, so probably not a smashed aluminum can, at least not a shallow one
Had difficulty pinpointing it. Had my big coil on the E-TRAC.
After some shovel work, out pops Ben, George and two lady friends. Looks like I broke up the party
Can't believe my luck lately.
I don't remember ever pulling 4 silver coins out of one hole.
The Rosie was not part of the silver foursome.

Didn't think that was possible anymore. What a find ! A major congrats on that one. And I agree, you seem to be riding high on the silver train lately. Good luck. Mark

It's neat that two of the silver coins are of the larger denominations. The Franklin half and Washington quarter are fantastic finds!
