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.

Thats a fine hunt for this time of the year alright! Good Job!


Detecting is the study of Mankinds interaction with topography, the untrustworthiness of pockets, and metals desire to return to the Earth from whence it came.
