Default My Best Year - Over 400 Pieces Of Silver, 352 Silver Coins, And Some Fun Times

Hey everyone,
I figured my 2015 year was worth posting in the mind blowing section. Overall I had my best year and had a blast detecting with my buddies including seeing Dan (Raphis) also have his best year. I won't bore you with a big story, enjoy the photos. I have also been posting these finds on instagram if you want to check them out there. My user name is also jamflicker.

Silver Coins: 352
Sterling Silver Pieces: 60
Wheat Pennies: 1,602
Oldest Coin: 1860 1/4 Reale
Oldest Silver Coin: 1888 Seated Quarter

What a year you had, Jason! 2015 was such a special detecting year in so many ways! We both exceeded expectations and our goals, which was so cool!!

Great presentation of your finds!

Hope you keep tearing it up a little while longer like you have so far in 2016!

HH,
Dan

Thanks Bud! The spoon is called a tea caddy spoon. My buddy Dan identified it for me because I had no clue either.
