Default 2017 Finds so far. Nokta Impact & Quest Detectors

Wife wanted some $$ to help pay for our new freezer she desperately needed. I told her she can have my silver and gold rings found this year, some silver coins and all my clad coins. Emptied my bucket of 2017 dug clad coins and tumbled them clean. They looked bank-able, nice and clean. Not messing with the lowly pennies found, so they are not pictured. The wife counted out the clad, thought there was more, only $160.

Works out to about $1.60 hour hunting approx. 100 hours. That was my working wage back in 1973.

nice haul, if the middle part of the coin is missing, will the bank still accept it?
