Default September Retrospective: Let's Go For Another Walk, No. 50 FTY, and More.

A rather late round-up to be sure, but September produced a group of notable goodies!

The day that produced my 50th silver coin recovery for the year, a 1964 D Washington, also produced $1 face in silver, including a 1939 Washington (dug back-to-back with the '64) and a 1945 Walker. It was a truely stupendous day and one that will stick in my memory for a long time.

I love the details on the 1920 D Merc, it's one of my favorites I've ever been able to find.

28 Wheats (eight of which came from one hole) were also recovered in September, along with two Sterling Catholic charms and a Play Nickel.

Enjoy the in-situs! The wood flavor of the month is African Mahogany.

GF&HH!

A monster WELL DONE on the silver. To me, there is nothing prettier than the shiny reeded edge of a silver coin sticking out of a clump of dark soil.

Thank you all for the continued encouragement! I'm having a blast recovering history from the depths. October's roundup is going to be pretty special too.

Congrats on a stellar day. All the 1920 mercs I have dug have been slick! I did find a near mint state 1918 once though.
