    Year end pictures my 2006 start

    Well, I started MDing at the end of Sept. this year. My first find ever was the half-dime, and I ended up this last week with the barber dime and the 1940 quarter. Considering it was the first month and a half of my newfound love/hobby, I think I did pretty good.

    pic #1 & 2 1944 merc, 1906 barber dime, 1895 IH, 1840 half-dime(seated)

    #3 1940 slq, 1941 D slq.

    #4 wheat pennies, first gold(earring), 925 sterling earring, 2 silver rings

    #5 Big pile 'O clad

    I noticed that no-one really utilizes all the signature space provided, so I figured to be REALLY original I would make up the longest signature that I could and probably just leave it as one big run on sentence because all that punctuation just takes up way too much space-HH.

    Great finds for such a short time..... I have come to the conclusion that the American people throw money and jewlery away.... Here in South Africa, you really have to look for the stuff. I have found less than a quarter of the coins you have, and have been at it for around a year. Jewelery = NIL.... Good going, keep it up.


    God bless

    Re: Year end pictures my 2006 start

    I may really be onto something then, I have yet to really hit any area "hard". I only had a month and a half of good weather, so I did a lot of scouting type searches. The half-dime barber and 1941 slq all came from the same stretch of woods.

    Great job on those finds... especially the Barber and the seated.

    Just for future reference though, "slq" is generally used to refer to a "standing liberty quarter", not a silver Washington.
