Default Some recent cool finds.....bunch of older shiny

I've been working a lot lately so I haven't had a lot of time to detect. Most of the short outings I've had produced pretty decent finds though. The last Merc and the SLQ I dug just a little bit ago in a ghost town in NW North Dakota on the way home from the rig.

Thanks Tom! I was hoping for an old token somewhere as well but I'm pretty happy with what I got.

Thanks Surgeon! After breaking two of those tungsten rings I decided to pick out my own to replace them....I like it a whole lot more.

Tundra, those are the best v nickels I've ever seen! Congrats on those and the silver coins! I like the intricate design of your gold ring also.👍

Great looking collection of oldies there.
Also, just looking your 2022 totals, 4 half dollars out of your 33 silver coins !!!! That is quite remarkable. I was a bit worried I wasn't gonna get one this year, but I finally just scored my 1st a few weeks ago.
Grats on the goodies. Keep up the good work.

BTW, was gonna ask ya if you feel like your CTX battery pack is still as affective as it was when new??

Not only jealous of the finds, but jealous of your dirt. Don't see old nickels and wheaties come out like that around here.

In any case, awesome finds! Congrats.

Thats a nice consistent diet of older finds there; nothing to sneeze at. That baggage check is pretty cool, you dont see a lot of them

Thanks RJ! I had one of those darn 1916-S Mercs come out years ago in really good condition that had me excited.

Thanks MSC! I always figured there's no sense in showing your finds if you can't get good pics of them.
