WOW! That was an awesome hunt! Congrats on the huge silver bucketlister and other great finds! What a way to finish out the season as hunts start to taper off due to winter creeping in.

I never held one of these silver dollars before. It's bigger than I thought. It must have been really tall grass, or a muddy puddle, or deep snow when it was dropped. Thanks, it was a great hunt.

Thank you. After seeing so many great hunt results in these forums, it feels good to score some great results of my own. There are better things to find, of course, but a silver dollar has been my dream target for a very long time.

I can say no more than others have, that was a great hunt and that peace dollar is one to die for (well figuratively, lol).

Congrats on the Slivers, but especially on the big Peace Dollar! I'm picturing you just like this little guy: (except not at a beach).

Fantastic hunt! You peeled my interest and made me want to call in sick and grab my detector. Congrats on scratching one off the bucket list.

Thanks everyone! I worked the same area today, and found no silver. Dug all the pennies I could find, and only one was a '49 wheat. The highlight of today's hunt was a cowbell. A bit smashed & rusted, but it's my first cowbell. Also found another flattened penny, with no detail left. That makes 4 flattened pennies for me this year.
