Default Not done yet! 4 more silver!

Any day could be our last here in Nebraska/Iowa and if today was my last hunt I am more than happy with results! It was just nice to be out in December with warm weather and a good hunting partner. Found 4 more silver dimes and a sterling pendant that was cut in half. Pastor Bob and I hit one of our favorite small town parks along with a new spot Bob found. Bob had a great day as well check out his post for finds. I am now at 49 silvers FTY. I really hope to get out again to find #50!

Not bad Ben, for a Nebraska December! Actually, that's GREAT for December in Nebraska. Looks like a good spot you have. Merc dimes are one of my favorites. Now, take out the batteries, wipe the mud off and start planning for an even better 2020.

Nice late haul. The silver chunk looks like part of a Sterling medical or identification bracelet.

Thanks! Yeah I wasn't sure about the cut silver piece that very well could be. I looked all around this area for the other half but no luck.

Thanks! Hope you get off the silver slump soon. I know the feeling I have had a few silver slumps this year as well. Hope to finish strong.

Awesome hunt with four silver coins, congrats! I'm sure you'll hit the big five O before year's end.

Some very impressive late season hunting Ben. A lot of guys have already packed it it for the year and then there are a few that put them selves through some hearty trials to seek out just a few more treasures. Congrats on the Barber, the 3 Merc's along with the Wheat's on a late season outing. Hope your opportunity stays available for you a bit longer. It truly looks like after this weekend Wisconsin ground will be locked up until Spring thaw with temps only reaching the low to mid twenty's for the highs in the coming future. Trapper

Thanks Trapper. Unfortunately I think you are correct. Weather looks terrible next week. I will be back in the area in the next couple years I'm sure so I will keep in touch.
