Default First silver coin of the year and some other keepers

I decided to head out into the cold for some woods hunting. Hunted for about an hour and a half with nothing but trash to show for it. I started back to the car and got a deeper nickel signal. I cut the plug, turned it over, and got in there with the pinpointer. Out popped a 14D Barber dime. Sweet! Checked the hole again and got an 1899 V nickel. Nice! About two yards closer to the car got another nickel signal and dug a dateless buffalo. Close to the car I got a nice high squeek. It ended up being junk, but a clay marble was also in the plug. My first! Ended up being a pretty good little hunt.
