    I would love to find an old silver half dollar that was shot! Congratulations on a great find! I bet you a walker you'll never find another shot half.
    Grats and thanks for sharing.

    That’s a bullet hole.

    That makes it extra cool. You will find another Walker, but I bet it won’t have a bullet hole in it.

    Most disappointing? Your find doesn’t come close to disappointing! Nice chunk of silver.

    Target must be in the ground...Coil must swing over target...User must dig.

    Gold for the money...silver for the pleasure...copper for the history.

    I would still be very happy. How many people do you know even here on TreasureNet that have a silver coin with a bullet hole through it.

    You my friend are one of a kind!!!

    Strawberry Fields for Cheffer? Bad attempt at Beatles humor - sorry. Even with the bullet hole, that is still a beauty, in my opinion. Congrats.

    Its a shame someone had to ruin that coin, but at least its yours now. One of my most disappointing finds ? A gold colored coin that I thought was going to be a $20.00 gold piece, and it turned out to be a Readers Digest token !
