Default Three George Washington's--Silvers #14, 15, 16

It has been a while since I posted. I just been finding the usual boat load of clad and a few single silvers here and there.

But today my luck changed. I went back to this abandon school, that yesterday, I had found $18.00 in clad and 1/2 of a sterling silver spoon there.

Today, I searched the front of the school and found three GW quarters: '39-D, '61-D & '64, two silver rings and five dog condition wheaties. The quarters are all very heavily discolored. I even tried to clean them with Bartenders Keeper cleaner which did not work.

With these three quarters my silver count FTY is at 16.

Thanks for stopping by to read my post!

That is some fantastic hunting John. A two day total of near $30 in clad is very impressive but when you count in the Silver, the Sterling plus the Wheat's it is just plain outstanding. Congrats on the 3 Silver GW's, the 2 Sterling Rings and the Sterling Soon Handle plus all the rest. Trapper

Thanks...The rings were found in the more bad to get areas such as under some over grown bushes.

Thanks...Only back in the very early days did I find more GW's in one hunt. It is always a special treat for me to find those quarters instead of dimes.

Thanks Trapper...The reverse side of those quarters are like permanently stained/discolored. The soil ground conditions at the school were really deteriorating the coins. All the coins were deeper and all have the rust color on them. It is obvious the school due to iets age has been cherry picked already of all the silvers and high conductors, but i glad to find those quarters but not even one merc. I been having to travel further out to find these places to hunt.

Thanks...It is still a trill for me to find any ring but two silvers is even better.

Thanks...It is really strange how things turn out sometimes. Most days I don't get silver or may be a merc or two, but three GWs in one day, makes me want to take the next three days off from hunting.

Nice! I've dug only 1 silver quarter this year. Cant seem to get over any. 3 in one hunt is really quite a great outing.

Nice haul John. That's a boatload of clad. Congrats on the Gws and rings. Zymol cleaner wax works great on silver, aluminum, war nickels as well. Glad to see your back at it. Good luck. HH Mark

Thanks...I was very surprise too as to find not one, not two but three GWs in one day.

Thanks....since I got the NOX I been finding mostly silver dimes. Two of these quarters were masked with nearby zincs and a pull-tab. And the interesting part is, the very first two finds of the day were two of these quarters.

Thanks yooper69...I just hope I can have the same success in future hunts.

Thanks Mark...this year has been good to me again with the clad count. I started the year of good with silver coins too, then I hit this drought period, but still were still finding some silver jewelry. Thanks for the suggestion with the Zymol. I never seen anything like how badly stained/tarnished the reverse side of these quarters are. In fact, when they all came out of the ground, I first thought they were clad due to the discoloration.

Thanks...I had a lucky day. That pin I thought was gold or even gold filled. But after cleaning it up I found no makings and it looks cheap close-up too...so it is plated junk like many of the other hopeful pieces I find.

A GREAT way to clean silver using a non abrasive method is: Line a bowl with tin foil. Put 1/4" baking soda in it, lay the coin dirty side up on it. Cover the coin with another 1/4" baking soda, then add boiling water slowly from the side. Let sit 15 minutes, then pick up & gently rub through your fingers. Comes out VERY clean!
