    2013 - My 2nd Year of Detecting: Lots of Silver and Gold!

    It was a my 2nd year doing this and I decided to dedicate a lot of time to the hobby. I am proud of the progress I made!

    I had one class ring return and a silver relic return, which was exciting and very rewarding. I embedded links in the previous text if you are interested in reading about them.

    Here is the count and a few pictures for my 2013 most notables:

    16 Buffalo Nickels
    8 V Nickels
    1 old Mexican coin

    Silver Coins: A total of 74 Silver Coins

    11 Quarters - 6 Washington, 5 Standing Liberty
    45 Dimes - 1 Seated, 23 Mercs, 18 Roosies, 3 Barber
    12 War Nickels

    Jewelry: A total of 59 gold and silver items
    50 Rings - 31 Silver and 19 Gold

    Obviously, you have no life, lol! Seriously, that's an awesum amount of digging and a lot of very nice finds. To whom did you find return a 1934 college memorial buckle? Must have been children or grandchildren. My dad is 91, and he was only 11 in 1934.

    It looks like a buckle, but it's not. It's actually pretty small. You can read the post on its return by clicking here.
