    Short hunt after work ~ 1943 Walking Liberty Half!

    Hello!

    The weather has been very rainy here the last few days. I wasn't planning on going detecting at all today, but my daughter called me to come pick her up from her friend's house downtown. By the time I drove down there the rain had stopped ~ so I decided to pull over a few blocks away from where my daughter was and I took out the detector to do a little hunting! I only got to detect for about 20 minutes before the rain started up again . . . . . . . I ended up with 8 memorial cents, 1 clad dime, 1 clad quarter, and a 1943 Walking Liberty Half dollar! The modern clad coins were all just shallow targets, but the Walker was about 6 or 7 inches deep! I'm going to go back to that area as soon as the rainy weather stops and see what else is there!

    I took pic's of the Walker before and after I cleaned it up. This is my silver coin #41 for the year!

    Thanks for looking!
    Neil

    You make me so MAD! You find better stuff in a Twenty Minute hunt than I do in a 6 month time frame. You make me sick! LOL

    Nice Walker, Neil. Seems like anywhere you hunt these days, you're making great finds.

    Nice job on the walker! You have sure been killing it in silver over in Oregon!
