Default Big Silver, Big Sterling, And A Big Kidney Stone

Hey everyone,
Iím going to be out for a couple weeks after having surgery this past Friday to remove a kidney stone that was too big to pass. Doctors orders, nothing physical and no work for two weeks. Iím going to go crazy but at least the stupid thing is out of me.

Here are some finds I havenít got around to posting from two hunts prior to surgery. I found the sterling buckle made by Hickok, sterling spoon, and 3 silver dimes on an after work hunt with my buddy Kurt (happa54). Then got out with my buddies Dan and Steve and found a 1934 Walker and 2 Rosieís.

These finds takes be to 42 silver coins, 4 pieces of sterling, and 154 wheat pennies for the year. This kidney stone might have slowed me but Iíll be back out there with my buddies soon.

Jason

Man, you keep socking away the silver like this and maybe you'll drive up the price from lack of supply...

Nice work as always Jamflicker! Heal up quick and get back out there!

Thanks! The spoon was folded in half and broke while straightening it.

Hope for a very quick recovery Jason. Don't be surprised after 10 days you will be out digging. Congrats on adding to the totals, really love the Buckle. Trapper

They woke me up from being under to the kidney stone in a vial. That was the last I saw of it.

WOW! Nice Finds Jam.
Where do you find all these sites to hunt?
Are these permissions or some hardcore research?

Get well soon Jam...

Thanks bud! Research, years of trying places sometimes failing and sometimes success, working with buddyís, and having a capable detector and knowing the detector really well are keys.
