With proper planning, and investments...my retirement age is now 92
Bucket list silver X2....then X2 again!!!! OMG.
Updated cleaned up pics!!!
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...
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!

Great job buddy! That's killer. Hard to tell from the pics if a lemon juice bath would help

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.
