    Standing Liberty Quarter

    I went yesterday for a quick dip in my lake that I have been pounding for the last three years. I've been going very slow listening for faint signals, I heard that familiar sweet silver sound. After chasing, circling my target and scooping about four times it was getting louder and the number was staying a clean 95. I was thinking a quarter expecting to see a Washington, when on about my eight scoop I spotted the grey coin in my scoop. When I pulled it out I seen Lady Liberty standing. I have found approximately 30 silver Washington's at this very spot but never a SLQ,This was the first at this lake. Never ceases to amaze me how things can still be in the very same piece of bottom I've been over hundreds of times. I had planed on hunting a couple hours but I took that as my exit find and left to hunt again at my favorite honeyhole another hot day.
    I had to zap this one because I could not see if it had stars on the reverse, had to look for that nipple!

    Thanks, sitting on the bottom of a lake for maybe 80-90 years might also have allot to do with that?

    I think that was six silver coins this season so far, not quite like it was in the beginning, but still a nice refreshing dip at any rate. Thanks Chris

    I agree J, I'm grateful I have that lake like a reserve site, it's a beautiful spot just like my other lake that still produces every now and again.
