    First silver coin in the hole....FINALLY!

    Today at dusk, I dug a 94-95 signal that was very shiny when I looked into the hole. My brain recognized it was silver from all of the cool metal detecting videos I have watched on Youtube, wondering when that would be me that finds the silver. Well, today was the day! And it is right at my two year anniversary of metal detecting. It was sooooo much fun pulling out this 1964 Kennedy half dollar.

    Yes, it did! I had been over this field before, but somehow missed this signal.

    That's one helluva way to start off with your first silver!! Took me years to find my first half and I only have one. Silver dimes and quarters are now gonna feel like small potatoes to you. Congrats R&B!
