Default It was a Cladfull Day

With the colder weather coming, I figured I better get out today to crank up my Year End clad count. I went back to a school that I been to a few times before. In fact this is the same location that I had previous set my record on quarters found in one day at 113.

Today, I was not too far behind with 98 quarters found. In total, I probably have found 400+ quarters at this school alone. Timing is everything when best to hunt this school...

Anyway, I found like $28.00 in clad and a nice silver religious metal.

By all counts, even though I have not tallied up my finds for this year, I know it will be a very good year. Hopefully, I will get some hunting in tomorrow as to add this year's grand total as to post and add onto Friendly's Clad Count totals.

Congrats on another good clad hunt and also the silver too. I had the same experience this year at two sites like yours. Sadly, the goodies do not replenish quickly here. Hope your sites do. GL & HH.

Fantastic job JAK on a great clad count. Always nice to add some Sterling along the way of the adventure. Hope the return trip is just as productive. Trapper

Thanks bubbaron! Most of my silver and clad are coming in mostly 3"+. I more of less been hitting old locations that I thought were dried up. I had a good year last, but I know this year will be even better.

Thanks Captain Silver! The ground conditions were just right, not too hard or frozen however very damp and easy to dig too. Those targets were singing everywhere.

Thanks Mud-puppy! Good catch with the St. Nick theme! I went to another school today. Although, I have not checked my finds yet, but it looks like another good day with possibly another good surprise mixed in with it...at least I am hoping. I know like you, we find much of our clad in the odd-ball places that most just don't bother to search.

Thanks Trapper! I been finding silver coins on and off too. But I usually don't write them up if it just like one conman coin. These good clad hauls are always welcomed and fun digging. Fortunately, I was able to substitute a silver coin with a silver metal this time.

Thanks pacer! You said that right, but actually, I find it best to squat, dig and retrieve. What tires me out, is when I don't find anything.

Thanks mdtrapper! I been lucky for sure this year. And most of the finds were from repeat locations too. What a difference a new detector makes!
