Good Luck

Well, the area has a lot of silver age history...and you are pretty good...and very lucky...so I would say....Wait! You just said "silver". So jewelry and other silver finds count? Not just coins?

Oh, OK, Great! Then I will guess zero. I sure hope I am wrong. Actually this answer ensures that I will start out in the winners seat until you find the first one. I fully expect to be dethroned promptly.
