    Bucket list silver X2....then X2 again!!!! OMG.

    Updated cleaned up pics!!!

    I'm stunned.
    The street tear outs are still producing, a few wheats here, clad dimes there...the occasional silver keeps me going...then today happened.
    The AT Pro sounded off a choppy 90-91-92 ..... Wierd. It wasn't clear or consistent, but I was intrigued. The target seemed big, so the dig began.....not expecting to see a clod of dirt, perfectly flat on one side, and round....and, big? I'd seen this before, when a coin is broken from its grave, there is that pretty flat dirt to the side of the coin...but not like this.
    I reached into the hole, and I felt a big, round...
    OMG...did I just find big silver? I didn't try to ID it, as I was thinking this might be my best find ever...
    I stood up, scanned the hole, and the signal was still there!
    Slowly I fished out, another one?!?
    Another, and another!!! I was like, this can't be happening. 5 minutes later my wife calls and says dinners ready....really?
    In lieu of in situ pics, I did the best I could, still not sure what I found...Click image for larger version.

    So the clean up was pretty intense, I dropped Holy bombs in shear joy and excitement as I saw what the beauties were....
    1923 and 1925 Peace Dollars!!!
    1921 and, the Belle of the ball...1889-0 Morgan's!!!

    I had never found a dollar coin...today I found 4! Crazy! Oh, and also my oldest silver!(with a date).....
    Now, I gotta read up how to best clean them, if I even decide to.

    Thanks for looking!

    I bet your dinner was cold today but I bet you were ok with that. Wow, that was an amazing outing you had. You could have given some credit to the Quest......if it had ever arrived, huh.

    You must be doing something right. Won a detector, now pull 4 silver dollars/2 bucket listers at once. Once you dig a plug like that I find it hard to concentrate, my brain switches into celebrate mode. Congrats BWD, 2016 is looking good for you.

    I know who's buying the 2nd pitcher..

    You may want to increase your silvers goal, heck your already at 5 and you still have 51 more weeks in the season.
