    My hands are still shaking!!

    Hi everyone. Decided to try a new spot today, despite the threat of rain. Wasn't even there an hour, when I got a high tone on the E-Trac w/ funky numbers. Almost didn't dig it, as it was shallow (3 inches) and only about 8 or 9 feet from the street. Boy am I glad I decided to dig!! The first coin out of the hole was the walker. MY FIRST!! Pinpointer kept going off, and I kept pulling coin after coin out of the hole.

    At first, I thought I had stumbled upon a cache, but the lack of any container (jar, coin purse) and shallow depth (none of the coins were deeper than 3 inches), led me to conclude this was a BIG pocket spill (my biggest yet). I dug an amazing spill back in 2011 (2 Barber dimes, 1 V nickel, and 3 wheats; nothing newer than 1917), and, until today, thought nothing could top that. BOY WAS I WRONG!!

    Ended up pulling 9 (NINE!!) coins out of the hole, 7 OF WHICH WERE SILVER!!!

    The spill: '20 walker, 2 SLQs ('25 and a no dater), '36 Washington, 2 mercs ('29, '36), '16 Barber dime, '26 buff (date is very faint; not pictured), '13 wheatie (very worn; also not pictured). Nothing newer than 1936!!

    Based on the condition of the 1936 coins, I believe the spill is from '37 or '38. Anyone know if $1.61 was a lot of cash to lose back then?? This is by far my biggest spill ever found.

    I also found a plated sterling ring and 7 wheats (includes the '13 from the spill). Clad totaled $2.10.

    Pics of the spill loot are below. I'm now at 77 silver coins for the year. Enjoy!!

    Thank goodness I'm off work tomorrow, you bet I'm going back @ first light!!

    My silver. The most I've ever found at one time was two dimes. Good luck hunting tomorrow.
    If you see a penny and you don't pick it up your'e not worth a cent.

    Only thing that would have made it better is a Morgan! Congrats on an incredible find and hope it produces more for you.

    Definitely some nice finds! Congratulations. Are you by chance finding these on a known battlefield where Americans fought or do you think they were spilled randomly?

    No battlefields in my area, lol. Was found in a park near the base of a small tree. Tree was nowhere near big enough to date to the spill years; it was 20-30 years old @ the most.

    Thanks Old Dude. Still waiting for my first Morgan. I'm stoked that today I got to cross another coin off my list (the walker is my first ever found). I also found my first seated quarter about a month ago. Still need both types of 3 cent pieces, a two center, a flying eagle, a Franklin half, a Morgan, a 20 cent piece, and a half dime, among other things. Would love a bust coin or two, but my area isn't old enough, lol.
