Default Three Silvers in one hole.. a first for me :)

Haven't posted in a while.....been busy but still finding time to hunt.
10 Silvers since Saturday but yesterday had to be the best find ever for me.

Went out Yesterday with PJ (icthelite) to a small park we have been hunting the
last couple days. Got 4 silver out of there on Tuesday.

Yesterday I was getting some deep 8-9 inch wheaties but no Silver.....PJ got
two Mercuries and at one point he had to leave for the day. Within 10 minutes
of him leaving a got a signal that was jumping around yet a few times I saw a
46 or 47 in the conductive numbers on the Etrac and of course it had that familiar
Etrac sound.

Dug the plug and saw the two silver coins (the washington and Merc)
I call Pj right away and as the phone is still ringing I took my probe and
checked the hole (which I always do) and there is another coin in there
right at the bottom of the hole dead center.

I scraped a little dirt from the bottom and another merc was right there.

I had PJ on the phone by this time and I said to him, "your not going to believe this!!"

Anyway, I know this is getting long but this was the most exciting find I have ever
had. I just stayed there on my knees at the hole for the longest time just looking
at the coins. I left the Merc at the bottom of the hole partially exposed with the other
two up on the dirt and I just savored the moment with a big smile on my face.
It was so incredibly awesome!!!

I continued to hunt for about another half hour and couldn't stop smiling

Thanks guys!

This is going to be a hard find to beat but I think even 1 gold coin would do it

Maybe a Morgan????

Nice job Randy, but I just wanted to be sure I read this correctly.
You said PJ left, then 10 minutes later you find 3 silver coins in one hole...

Uhhh....ya, unfortunately it kinda went down like that...lol

Wish he would have stayed.

I think your just jealous 6 more to 150.....I'm going to go for it.
I was out at a different spot tonight but only got 6 wheaties and no silver

The place PJ and I have been going to is a sweet little spot....we've pulled
17 silver out of there and over 50 wheaties!!

Yes Matt that's what happened. He has been on a roll. He was very happy when he called me. I remember when his goal was 100 silver but now he is on a mission to hit 150. We went out today and he found 3 more. The snow is coming so he better hurry. I sure hope he hits 150 and I am there with him.

Nice job Randy!
I am sure you will hit 150 before I hit 100, I have not seen silver in over a week now.
