Talking 3-8-11 Finds(Double Silver)

Went out today to do a little detecting before the rain came. I hit a yard here in my home town. Didn't find too much but I did manage two war nickels. I thought this was odd because I don't normally find alot of these and today I fount two in the same yard. I'll claim it as a double silver day but I think it's possiably the worst double silver day ever. I'm happy with what I found and they cleaned up ok so it was a good day. Thanks, kbrown
