    2 silvers and one's a bucketlister

    C O L D hunt in Baltimore today with JF.
    We started at 28 F and ended at 32 F. No wonder fingers and toes were cold all day.
    We were out from 11:30 to 4:30.

    First field we tested yielded nothing but clad, nary a wheat between us.

    We moved west about 6 blocks to a field that had given me some relics last month and it did not disappoint.

    JF started off the silver run with a sterling four-way cross medallion.

    Not long after that I dug a vintage silver ring, though the hallmark is worn off, you can tell it's silver. Click image for larger version.

    We both managed some wheats, a couple from the 20s and then I dug a 9-inch deep key-slot escutcheon Click image for larger version.

    JF had to head home and I hung in there until the sun set behind the rooftops. A 27-28 signal on the Equinox 600 turned out to be a clad dime.
    After replacing the plug I got a high tone just on the edge of the plug and from about 5 inches down a coin ball revealed a thin and small silver disk.
    I popped the dirt off to read the words "HALF DIME".
    This is a first for me, first half dime Click image for larger version.

    I love the ring & the Half dime Has Cool looking '5's' in the 55'.

    Finding means adrenaline = Cold feels not as Bad. I just hope it was not Windy.

    A good hunt.

    As I am finding , In life we begin having the Blissful happiness & the Wonder & innocence of a Child, then fall Quickly, then spend the rest of our lives trying to reach that point where we began ,through Pleasure , Fame, & Materials but Only 'Through true faith in Jesus , can we find Prefect Happiness or true Meaning in our Short lives on this Beautiful Earth filled with both the Light of Pure goodness & The Darkness of Pure Evil. D.

    That Said, I judge No Man.
