    Barber dime, and an Elk!

    I got out with my dog the yesterday and today for a couple of quick hunts before a storm rolls in. My dog hunts ground squirrels First silver coin in a long long time! The dime is 1911 and in pretty good shape. 1916 wheat. The P might be from Knights if Pythius Iím not sure. I thought I would throw in a silver buck I never posted from about 6 or 7 years ago to make the post a little more interesting. Iíve been trying to make sure my hunted out spot is hunted out but that seems to never be the case. I have donated quite a few Elks pieces to the local lodge, thatís where the small one will end up!! Happy Hunting!!Click image for larger version.

    Thanks Washingtonian! It sure is nice when they pop out. I thought something might be wrong with my detector, I hadn’t seen a silver coin in while

    Thanks ATW and Truth. When I get my new detector I want to say I went to my hunted out spot, but it’s so trashy I think there will always be some keepers. Like it’s been said before swing speed, direction, how close the coil is and settings make a difference. I have been over that spot many times where the dime popped out

    Nice finds. Barbers are always a great coin to see come out of the dirt.
