Default How about this find!!!

So it's not a silver dollar, but it is a 1 Troy ounce bar!!! Not sure how it got there or why, but I'm sure glad I found it!!! May be the only time I find a big chunk of silver at one time... how cool is that!!!

Oh I forgot to add... I actually dug this!!! It was about a half inch in the ground and my at pro maxed out at 99 when I went across it!!!

Yeah! That qualifies as an Eyepopper! We dont see many of those 999 slabs found at all!...maybe once in a few years somebody will post one, generally found in a totter,...so Yeah! Good One!

A few years back, I remember a guy found a bag of 10 in somebodies backyard once...buried with a lot of other silver chains and whatnot...like some sort of modern stash/cache...

Are you sure you dug this bar of silver? I bet it hit a 99 on your At Pro. SMH

Sweet. Awesome score!!!! I have one but it was a prize won at a seeded hunt. That said I almost left it behind for another detectorist to find. Dropped it on my way to put things in the car and then eyeballed it on the way back.

That's a great find, not many people would carry those at all.

Wow now that's something not just every Tom or Dick or Harry nor I will ever find but that's what makes this hobby so doggone cool you just never know I bet the person who lost that backtracked their movements 2 and 3 and 4 times after discovering it was missing, and still has that mirror finish too. Congrats man!!
