    All my clad goes back into my other hobby....Fishing...That keeps me from finding more clad...
    A well balanced cycle!

    Thanks Dave. My Metal Detecting Finds are up but my freezer is down. I use to be able to give away lot's of perch and walleye but this year we have just enough for the family for the winter.

    Clad hunting around here is a little bit of a challenge. Knowing that you find a penny 50% of the time is not too exciting. Just goes with the area.

    Hey Mike. Yeah, we started the tumbling process. The belt broke on the tumbler the third load. Guess I overloaded it. I rigged it with a rubber band. Some of these coins are really red and it's hard to get that off. The guy at work always knows when I am paying my coffee money cause it's "dirty money".

    Very cool,,,,this may be of interest...I found this estimation of coins in circulation which roughly matches distribution of your finds...
    1c - 66.5%, 5c - 8.25%, 10c - 13.25%, 25c - 12%

    Re: Mirage and Nate 's totals for 2006

    Nice presentation Bob, looks like you guys had a great year.

    Unlike DoyBoy, I dig pennies. I'm glad he doesn't, cause that leaves more for us. Of course those lowly wheat penny's are nice to find also. I just love the 1914 D penny I found years ago.

    By the way Bob, do you have a Harbor Frieight Tools store near by. Then have a great tumbler there that is really cheap. actually it's a double tumbler. I think I paid around $30 for it. Check it out or go on line and check it out.

    Again, congratulations on all your finds and thanks for posting great pictures of them.

    Re: Mirage and Nate 's totals for 2006

    Let's see now ......From the charts it looks like you're doing a little better last year than in 2005? I cashed my clad in a while back and I think I had around $260.00 but don't remember for sure. I won't have that much this year as I am trying to stop wasting my time digging so many pennies. The problem is I like to know if there are wheaties around as it kinda' dates any other things I might find. Pennies ring up the same as a dime on one of my detectors...or on most of them depending on what year they are. The 1970s are bad about that for some reason. Nice pics, I posted one kinda' like it somewhere. Oh here's some of them, a months worth, the rest are in rolls. Monty

    Re: Mirage and Nate 's totals for 2006

    Interesting...I also keep track of my coin finds. Since August of 2005 I have found 2605 coins with the following breakdown....

    Pennies - 1799 - 69.06 %
    Dimes - 260 - 9.98%
    Nickels - 206 - 7.91%
    Quarters - 193 - 7.41%
    Halves - 2 - .08%
    Dollar - 2 - .11%

    I'm quite disappointed that the total dollar value is only $119.83, but finding so may pennies and so little of the other will do that. This all averages out to $.046 per coin found. Hopefully I'll find fewer pennies and more of the other. Also my silver total is so ridiculously low I won't even post it. I must be doing something wrong as I'm hardly finding silver at all.

    Whatever it is, it is valuable. If nothing else for the lesson learned or simply the experience of having been there.
