    Thats all she wrote folks, 2017 wrap up post MANY GREAT 1sts

    Well, thats it. That's a wrap for 2017. It was a crazy fun year beating all last year's totals and knocking some MAJOR items off my bucket list. Before I get to all of that, I just wanna say how much fun I had hunting along side alot of good friends. Got to hunt some really cool spots, some old home sites, great permissions, and even a spot I dubbed my "clad factory" real close to home. The clad factory helped pad my silver count for this year but I'm not complaining. Ended up with 87 total silver (75 coins, 12 non coin silver items) 3 and a half large cents, 1 KGIII, 1 pristine 2 center, a toasted half cent, 32 Indians, 15 old nickels, 332 wheats, and some GREAT relics. Managed 2 #4 crotal bells, an amazing colonial shoe buckle fully intact, some cool buttons including 2 civil war infantry buttons and a bunch of flat buttons. This year I got my oldest United States silver early on with the 1857 seated dime, then got #1 on my bucket list, 1820 capped bust dime! Probably my most favorite find of the year is the beautiful 1877 seated quarter love token. That is something you don't see everyday. The barber quarter still eludes my coil, hopefully next year I can check that off the list. What a fun year thanks for following along with me can't wait to get started once the ground thaws! Thanks for looking, happy hunting, and best of luck next year!

    Wow! What a year. I love the complete shoe buckle and of course the Capped Bust Dime is at the top of my list. You are bound to find that Barber Quarter as soon as the melt starts. Congrats!!

    WOW! Thanks for reminding me and I reckon ALL of us WHY we do this treasure hunting thing! What an awesome display of really cool recoveries my friend. Notching off those unexpected and HIGHLY hoped for Bucket List items ALWAYS at the top of our radar. You did spectacular and now are enjoying the warm winter of the southwest. Life is indeed good for ya'll. I believe I'll just sit here and stare at your super cool stuff and drink another pot of JAVA as I am frozen in with single digit temps. Thanks for the truly staggering post of really cool finds. What a year you had!

    That's a pretty impressive display of silver coins and jewelry. My favorite though is the intact shoe buckle.
