    As others have said, that's a pretty unique find with a bullet hole in it.

    My most disappointing find was just a couple of weeks ago when I saw a dollar sized gold foil in the bottom of the hole that turned out to be an aluminum container from
    the NJ Rubber company (and yes it was .... and I'm very glad to say it was empty. )

    I find my most disappointing find pretty much everyday. Nickel signals that are pull tabs. The runner up would be zinc penny’s...

    That’s a unique walker you dug! Congrats! ccasion14

    Mine is the BEAUTIFUL shining gold bottle cap AT THE BEACH with a pinch of sand perfectly centered on the cap so that it looks like a ring.

    Cheffer,

    Very nice find, where there is one there may be others. Perhaps there was a group of friends practicing their shooting skills. Good luck with your hunts. Walt

    Maybe that's the coin in the pocket that saved someone's life by slowing down a bullet in WW2...hey, you never know what the story might be.

    That is true, maybe there is something to that. Thanks for your replies guys, I didn't mean to sound ungrateful for getting a Walker with a backstory, those of you that know me know I'm happy with every wheat! Just seemed a shame to abuse such a beautiful coin in that way-GL and HH

    A walker is a walker! Too bad it's in the condition it is. My most disappointing find I would have to say was this gold plated thing that was about the size of a half eagle, it looked SOOO good down in the hole. I did end up finding a barber that day though...
