Default 6 silver morning

Had a nice hunt this morning with some oldies showing up. Maybe not old for you east coast hunters but old for my neck of the woods! Ended up with $4.48 in clad, 2 silver quarters, 2 silver dimes, a silver "Aloha" ring. Also picked up a Kennedy half dollar which is a rarity. When I got home I busted some conglomerates and ended up finding another silver in the conglomerate! I love these things, entombed treasure. Haven't scraped away at it yet to see if it's a rosie or 1916 d merc

Happy Hunting!!!

It was a devil today! High tide left me with a few feet to work with and waves tossing me around.

If 666 is a devil tide 6666 must be a lucky number
