    BIG Silver Sunday!

    I headed out late this morning. The first couple of spots were no good.

    I decided to swing by yesterday’s spot to give it another shot. It’s a Smittyman permission, I called him but he couldn’t attend.

    I found a bunch of these yesterday. Maybe a dozen during the 2 days. I can not figure out how so many of these got in the 1 acre front yard of a house built in 1957. Gas station bathroom condom foil packs!

    On to the coins. I convinced myself that a gold ring was bound to be in that grass somewhere. I dug about 25 pull rings, and found 6 Jefferson nickels in the process. No gold ring though.

    It wasn’t too long before I stumbled upon a nice high tone. When I pulled the plug out a silver dime was just laying there.

    I found a Washington quarter next, I got excited and didn’t get any pictures.

    I was up by the road, and got one of those “can bottom” hits, big, high and shallow. It sounded good, but aluminum cans always do.

    I pulled the plug out and couldn’t believe my eyes. I knew as soon as I saw the fat reeded edge that some careless person had lost a silver half dollar.

    This is the 17th silver half dollar I’ve found in 5 years of detecting. It’s still a big thrill to me.

    Nice productive hunt, Tom. I guess some previous owner had a good use for what was in the aluminum discarded.
