Default 3.5 silver day with a newer forum member

Had the opportunity to meet and hunt with Johnny Phoenix today and it was a multiple silver day for both. Had to fend off the storm but still had the opportunity to have some good digs and meet a new member!

The war nickle was on top of the merc, and rang up like a zinc cent, but seemed pretty deep. The two washingtons wereabout 6 inches apart

Sounds more like "The Kiss of Death" ! They were great live back then. Now forget it - Donnie's voice is completely shot.

Yeah, it's a shame the weather chased us away. Otherwise, it was a good hunt and nice to get out and interact with a forum member!

That is some great hunting Craig. Always nice to share an adventure with a new friend and it's even better when all find success. Congrats on the Silver GW"s the Merc and the Shiny Nickel. Hope that more of those types of hunts follow. Trapper

Good job. And when you leave dirt on the coins, that counts as an "in-situ" picture
