    2012 in Review - what a year!

    2012 was a great year! A mild winter allowed me to get our more, and some new sites helped me have a great year for early silver. I dug a fair number of coppers, but they were all toast for the most part. Here are my coin totals for the year.

    Indian Head - 4
    V Nickel- 1
    Buffalo Nickle - 2
    Half Dimes - 1
    Silver Rosie - 1
    Draped Bust Dime - 1
    Half Real - 4
    One Real - 2
    One Real cut from 8 Reale - 1
    Two Reales - 2
    King George II coppers - 4
    King George III Coppers - 2
    Half Cents - 4
    Draped Bust Large Cent - 4
    Connecticut Coppers - 1
    Unidentified Coppers -10
    Hard Times tokens - 1

    I am going to post pictures from 15 of the 24 hunts I documented in 2012.. The pictures are in chronlogical order starting on 2/5/12 and ending on 12/15/12. (I guess the pictures did't quite show up in the order I intended but they're close)

    Steve, what a year, if only more could be like that. Sure got a lot of silver in 2012, like the points, coppers. Hard to say what your best find was, but getting another Draped bust silver was golden.

    "The mantra has always been don't clean a (copper) coin or it will lose value.
    For undug coins this is true. For dug coins this is untrue.
    The value will increase with judicious cleaning."

    Thanks Don, I am pretty happy with the silver. If there is anything to be disappointed about, it would be the condition of the coppers I dug this year.
