    I have 3 hobbies and did all this weekend.

    hobby #1 - CRH - FRIDAY
    $825 in halves and $25 in dimes got me: 2 90% and 1 40% half and a rosy dime.

    hobby #2 - yard sale hunting - SATURDAY
    a lonely 3 gram silver bracelet (pretty bad but did get over 2 pounds of silver last weekend) plus I found a few things for eBay.

    hobby #3 - metal detecting - SUNDAY
    2 pieces junk jewelry and about $8.00 in change.

    do you see a common thread here? all my hobbies make money instead of cost money.
    When I did yard sales I was dollardan. No yard sales where I am now.

    The trend only holds if you don't buy short rolls, buy something you THINK is worth something but is only junk, and can find enough good stuff to pay for the expensive beast that is a MD. =)

    Grats on your finds though!

    And you seem very experienced in the yard sale/random silver item buying category, so I doubt you make a bad buy there too often.

    My XLT has more than paid for itself in coins alone. (that does not count about 8 gold items and dozens of silver) I have also written 2-3 stories for Whites and get $200 gift certificates. Last certificate I got a friend wanted a new eliptical coil and I wanted his bigfoot coil, fair trade. I never go anywhere without my bigfoot.

    One of my hobbies is also MDing. This year I've pulled about $100 in clad, 23 silver coins and other oldies. At that rate, I should have both my detectors paid for in about 15 years LOLOL!

    Detectors ain't cheap, that's for sure. Especially if you want a good one!

    How does the article/$200 gift certificate work? Write about your finds and if they like it they pick it? Or are there other topics? Nice work to you though sir on getting them.

    Since I have a white's machine it was easy. I read a lot of their stories to see what they accept. I then crafted a story (all true) to highlight their machine and what it can do. Then I submit it to sales@whiteselectronics.com Todd is in charge of this now. About the time they publish it on their website they mail me a gift certificate that can only be used at their web store. I don't think they ever publish the $200 cert payment, just word of mouth. So they may not do it any more or it may be less.

    Here are my last two stories. Can't find the first one.
