    Big Silver Pocket Spill!!!

    I was out today with Kindafoundabuckle after he got off work, and we got permission to hunt an old farmhouse that we had been eyeballing for a long time. When we first got on the property we started finding a steady trickle of wheat pennies, plus a few indian head cents, a buffalo nickel, and the usual clad. We finished both sides of the front yard and worked our way around the back. My hopes were not high at this point, since I usually seem to find kitchen and farm junk behind old farmhouses like these. Then I heard KFB yell "I got a Barber!" I walked toward him just expecting it to be yet another Barber Quarter. It was only a dime. (Whew. I am gettin tired of him digging up Barber Quarters every other outing!) I'll let him post his finds if he wishes.

    So I get back to hunting with a renewed vigor and as I approach this sunken pit in the back that I can only assume was the outhouse I get an overload signal. I figured it could be some farm junk, but I have always dug signals like these since I found my Morgan Dollar and Barber Half in the same hole on such a signal back in 1993. After I cut the plug and flipped it over, I could see two silver coins in the hole, plus a few pennies as well, and one of them looked like a silver half!!! I called KFB over and his eyes got HUGE.

    Every time I turned the loose dirt in the hole over with my knife, more coins came into view:

    I kept laying the coins on my green mat as KFB kept repeating over and over "unbelievable" in an excited whisper.

    After rechecking the whole probably six or seven times, stirring the dirt around again between each wave of the searchcoil, I became convinced that nothing else was there. I looked back at the green mat with the contents of the pocket spill. It consisted of three Wheats, a Buffalo Nickel, three Mercury Dimes, a Washington Quarter, and a Walking Liberty Half!

    We pounded every inch of the rest of the yard, but there were only a few other coins found, and they were all wheats

    The silver streak is over, thank God.

    Man great finds. My father in law is from booneville and his mom still lives in the same house he was born in and he is going to take me there to meet his mom and check out the area. I might find some goodies there. Happy Hunting and find another streak of silver or perhaps gold.

    The thanks go to KFB for the photos. He's the one that always has a digital camera on him, and he used to be a professional photographer...although sometimes you can't tell. I had to get that one in, KFB! Naw, those photos are GREAT, and thanks again!
