    The Quest is over I got my 150th Silver Coin for 2006 with a small bonus

    Well its Christmas Eve . The weather is unbelievable outside in Chicago. Upper 40's. Perfect for the Quest for 150.
    Started out at a soon to be torn down house. VISCERAL ( Pat ) met up with me there. About 45 min into the hunt
    I got #149 a 1945S Washington Quarter. After a bit we decided to head over to an Old School. With not much luck
    there and the stomach growling we got a bite to eat. From there we headed over to where I found my 1901-O Quarter.
    After about an hour there I pulled out a 1873 I H ( poor cond. NO LIBERTY which meant no Double Liberty ).
    The 1873 I H is now my Third Oldest Coin in all my years of M D.
    I kept sticking to the PARKWAY AREA since I have my best finds in them.
    Just a NOTE *** When hunting don't shy away from those out of the way spots. They always yield a find or two. Most
    hunters stay away from Parkways and do the open fields thus leaving good finds still in the ground. Always remember that
    there is always a lot of activity done between the street and sidewalk.
    About 1/2 hour later # 150 came to see the light. It was a nice cond. 1943 MERC.
    I also found an Old Wooden fishing practice plug.. and a very weird looking Bottle Cap..with a tab sticking out
    thus making it almost looks like a baseball hat .
    ANY IDEAS on it

    I will let VISCERAL post his finds. Hey pat I had a great time hunting today. Congrats on your finds too.

    [color=red]THANK YOU ALL
    AND.......
    A......

    VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL TREASURE NET MEMBERS

    Wow! 150 silver! An enviable record to be sure, and there are still days left this year. Hit 160!
