    WHAT WAS YOUR FAVORITE FIND IN 2006?

    Mine was 116 Morgan & Peace Silver Dollars and various other silver & copper coins that my brother and I found hidden in his dearly departed father-in-laws basement.

    That's gonna be hard to top. Here's my favorite find of the year, which doesn't come close.

    ... and you did not even need a detector for that find
    Holding history in our hands is a treasure in itself.

    hmmm That doesn't come close Are you kidding, Ray? I would gladly swap 116 common date morgan dollars worth $16-$25 each for one of those! I remember when I originally saw your post. I nearly fell out my chair. I think the gold coin is tops!!

    This old baggage tag might have been it, I just started last summer. I also found 8 or 9 wheats, 3 mercs, and an IH penny. All in all, pretty exciting to me. Nothing like you guys though. You guys are my heros!

    Man, I would be dancing with joy if I found either one, the silver or the gold.

    "Those are both very nice finds," he said, with just a hint of understatement. It's like comparing apples and oranges though, given the circumstances. Who wouldn't want to find a stash of silver dollars in a house? Anyone swinging a detector wants to find a gold coin, of course; it's hard to decide which I'd prefer. I'd be hardpressed to decide between my 1837 half dime and 1831 Bust Half Dollar, both with very nice detail left. The half dime is worth more, so I might have to lean that way.

    Sorry, that picture is rotten; I'm still refining my technique.

    My favorite has to be my first, an 1840 half-dime. I started MDing in sept, so I'm pretty proud that this was my first ever coin. I also really like the IH pennies, I've dug 3 so far. The pic was scanned in Nov. it was suppoesd to be part of my "end-o-year" stuff.

    I also got an '09 VDB a few weeks ago!!!

    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.

    Another of my favorites from 2006

    Another of my favorites this year came without the use of a detector. I posted this one back in November in the "Coin Roll Hunting" Forum.

    I decided to try roll hunting this summer with so-so results. A few 40% silver and an occasional circulated proof half, but not much else. At the end of November I asked the teller at my local bank how many rolls of halves they had. She told me 30 rolls, $300. When she was counting I could see at least one roll had a Franklin Half peeking out at me.

    Here were the results:
    12 Walkers
    7 Franklins
    13 Kennedys (40%)
