    Another beach day nets a little silver and LOT of lead

    It's been a while since I was able to make it to the beach, but I managed to sneak in a few hours today. Unfortunately, there weren't as many targets as usual, so I dug every signal. The result was a small amount of clad, a lot of fishing sinkers and bullets, and a few keepers. I did manage to find one silver dime - which, based on the reverse of the coin, was a Mercury dime. The obverse, however, was beyond salvage, so I'll never know what year it was minted. The best find was a silver bracelet which was marked "DNT .925 Italy" and weighed in at 11 grams! (It also cleaned up nicely!) I also found a copper medallion which turned out to be an Anheuser Busch pendant. I was able to find some just like it on eBay, but none of them have a date range of when it was manufactured. If I had to guess, based on most of the clad I found, it's from the 70's. It also cleaned up well via electrolysis. I know it isn't much, but it was a lot of fun to get back out to the beach! Thanks, as always, for looking and happy hunting to all of you!

    Looks like you had a good hunt. Silver is always nice and I like fishing sinkers for some strange reason.

    Keep swingin. I’m sure there is a lot more out there to find.
    If you’re not digging trash you are missing treasure.

    Thanks! It's probably going to be after the new year before I can get back out there, but you know I will!

    Thanks! I give them to the people fishing when I can, but yesterday there were only a few of us out there.
