    Walking on Sunshine

    Got out Wednesday morning for a couple hour hunt on the property where I found my Civil War Eagle Button a few months back.

    The land owner was there and he showed me where the house was at and the 2 additions that were added on were located. Talked for 15-20 minutes and was able to get in some detecting.

    I walked towards where he said the garden used to be located and now is a Pole Barn and pulled a couple of clad quarters. Not a bad way to start being that there is a lot of junk and shredded aluminum around the property.

    I made my way back into the main yard and was about 10 yards away from the truck and got a good solid hit in the upper right hand corner of my display. I had never had a reading up there and really wasn't thinking of a really good target, but boy was I surprised when it rolled out of the plug.

    My first Walking Liberty Half Dollar 1945

    There is a light scratch to it going from the middle ray towards the letter "I" in liberty. Now I'm not certain that I caused that, but if I did, then oh well so be it.

    Gotta say, the weather has been perfect and hope everyone gets a chance to get out and enjoy some digging.

    It'll come to you sometime Wing. I read where you found a ring made from a half dollar and that definitely qualifies in my book. In fact, I think that there would be a rarer find and would make my day.

    Thanks Adeptr,

    Took me nearly 7 years to find this one.

    Private lawns are the way to get one if you can get on them.

    Congrats on a BIG first DJ. I think its cool how most silver looks like it did the day it was lost when it comes out of the ground.

    You are correct DJH, private yards hold the treasures. Just have to be persistent when it comes to gaining permission. Its worth it! Nice Walker jgas
