Default First silver, n sterling

Great weather here today and I was looking for a place to hunt. I have been working an elementary school, but only on off hours. Then I remembered over the holidays my nephew had told me I was welcome to do his yard. 50's ish kinda housing plan. I have been looking for older places but I guess I shouldn't be so picky. First coin of the day, a wheatie, first one of the year, would go on to dig five more. I kept getting 86-87 on the AT Pro dug 6 quarters, the oldest a 66. Clad dimes I dug 6 of those including two 1965s.
Some where in there a sweet sound at 4in. came and when I popped the plug, my first silver coin of the year, a 62 Rosie, I'll take it. Also dug a sweet religious medal and a small buckle. The playboy thing I ain't sure wht that is, its got a little weight to it. All toll I dug 2.23 in clad. I would say I had a pretty good day. Gonna head back there tomorrow if it doesn't rain too hard. Thanks for looking and HH Mark.http://metaldetectingforum.com/mdgreen/attach/jpg.gif
