Smile I Have Finally Found My First Silver Coin!

Last summer I spent a lot of time researching old houses in our area, but unfortunately only made it out to one of them. However, yesterday after church my sister Chelsea and I went to an older area nearby with several old houses, which I had found using Historic Aerials. The first couple we knocked at no one answered, but we got a "yes" from the third house. We got our gear on and started detecting… it was maybe a minute into the hunt that I got my first signal- a solid dime reading on my Garrett Treasure Ace 300. I popped open a plug and stuck my pinpointer in and it right away started to go off. I flipped over a little clump of dirt and saw the stunning edge of a silver coin peeping out of the dirt! Carefully removing it from the clump of dirt I noticed the D mint mark on the reverse. I had finally found my first silver, a 1963-D Rosie!

After getting some pics and filling my plug back in, I resumed scanning and immediately got another dime signal about 6 inches away. I cut another plug, stuck in my pin-pointer again, and it quickly went off. I reached down and pulled another silver Rosie out from the dirt, also another 1963-D.

Later on in the hunt, I found a wheat penny (1945) about 3 inches away from the silvers, and an unfired .22 LR cartridge.

Thank you all for looking, happy hunting, & God bless!

A huge CONGRATS from me. That's an awesome feeling. And also your 1st 2 silvers in 1 hunt... How cool is that. Great perseverance to get those.

You are now a member of the exclusive & elite "silver coin club". Also, you are doing it in the correct date order : Roosies first. Then you can progress to merc. Then barbers, then seateds, etc... There's no "skipping to the head of the class "

Great job again Garrett! I would try to get back out there and hit that spot from a few different angles, low and slow! I'd be willing to bet a few more show up. Congrats!!!

Thank you, Jeff! There were still a few signals in a really close area, too. I wasn't able to finish digging them all before we needed to go for the day, but hopefully they're still there when we come back.

Well alright, ATTABOY, and way to go Wolfdog a HUGE CONGRATS on silvers #1 &2. Well deserved and way overdue your persistence has paid off. Ain't that a great feeling to see silver in hole ? Absolutely, I would make a return trip if possible and hit it again. Good luck, Mark
