    Half Crown

    My wife and I did some detecting today. It was slim pickin's today. Got $5.00 in clad and 2 wheats. BUT........managed to crowd my wife out of her section of the field and ...... hit on a good signal with my Etrac!

    This came up about 3" and found a Half Crown 1933 New Zealand.....it is 50% silver.

    That's COOL Sharkman!

    You know it's bad etiquette to crowd a fellow hunter out of their spot. She would be well within her rights to play the
    "what's mine is mine and what's yours is mine" card. LOL

    Great find. Happy Hunting,

    When I find a coin like that I have to sit back and wonder how it got there. Great find, silver is silver no matter where it comes from.

    An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.
