    Amazing 12 silver day - 5 Barbers

    Hello,

    I was invited to a little beach hunt at a promising site, and big it delivered!

    The three pack of us hunters had about 5 hours in the sun on a perfect hunting site. Coffee nearby, lots of space to roam, old bricks and glass everywhere!

    First silver was a barber dime, found by a fellow tnetter, and we all got excited knowing what might unfold.

    The finds were steady for me, and it was amazing. 2 silver Washington quarters off the bat, and
    Wheaties throughout just to let you know youíre on the right track. Highlights were two silver halves, and the array of barbage coinage. My first complete sterling spoon (baby spoon?)

    The site is a long haul from home - longest single mission Iíve taken for the hobby (about 3 hours to get there all said and done) but it was obviously worth it!

    The barber quarter is a 1897-s - looks like the 4th lowest mintage barber quarter @540000
    And the half is a 1915 Ės

    It was awesome Gather with fellow hunters, and have an instant connection, and jovial time!

    Wow now that's what I call a great hunt! Well worth the 3 hour drive! My best silver day has been three... I know it can be better! Those halves are awesome and the hole in the barber half makes it even better in my opinion!

    Now, that is what I call a road trip! I think your spoon is an old salt spoon.

    If you get a depth reading of four inches and you've dug down two feet and widened your hole several times and still get a signal, GIVE UP!
