    First silver and other goodies right under my nose

    found A 1918 merc in my backyard yesterday, along with some other goodies. I was already hooked on metal detecting but nothing beats silver in the hole! Also found a Warner tree tap, button, and a spoon handle with writing I canít quite make out yet. Seeing all the awesome stuff you all unearth with your detectors is part of what made me take the plunge.

    Congrats on some nice finds. Lots of great things posted from Vermont, so you are in a very promising area. Be warned though, this is a highly addictive hobby, especially after you make some nice finds such as those.

    Cool finds! That mercury dime is a beauty, but then so is any silver. Interesting tree tap, too. Thanks for posting your finds!

    Welcome aboard and Congrats for the great finds! You live in one of, if not THE, best regions for detecting, and with so much history here, it's difficult to envision an end to the amazing things we find. Best of luck!

    Spoon handle turned out to be what I believe is nickel silver based on how itís cleaning up, looks like someone hand carved initials into it W B P. Hopefully I can trace it back to an occupant from my old house.
