    5 Silver, 17 Wheats, 1 Gold/1 Silver Rings, 21 Hunt Silver Streak Still Alive!!

    Hello my friends!!

    The heat has really limited my hunting time for the past month, but I'm still getting out for a few hours here and there when I can, and each hunt has been a lot of fun. This 21 consecutive hunt silver streak has really challenged/pushed me to find at least one silver coin during each hunt in the turf. So far so good. I struggled yesterday to find 1 silver coin, and after digging 14 wheaties(ranging in dates from '21-'58), along with a bunch of 60's memorials/'65 dimes, I found my coin, a '60 Rosie. The silver ring I recovered yesterday was a pleasant surprise. It sounded like a deep wheatie. I believe it's an older style, and was down at a depth I was digging '40's-'50's wheaties, around 6". The other Rosies, along with a '41 20 Centavos were found last week at my #1 hot spot; same as yesterday.

    Earlier this week, I wanted to give my local beach a try with my Explorer. The SE worked great in the wet/dry sand. My best find was the small 10K ladies nugget ring.

    I'm not sure how much longer I can continue my streak at this park. It's bound to skunk me soon after recovering over 106 silvers from it this year. Either way, it's going to end where it started. I'm not going anywhere else....gotta go to the spots that reward you the most.

    I like the sound of 22, though.

    Thanks for looking!!
    Keep the Passion High!

    Nice batch Captn,

    You got some nice silver sites. Do you still hunt with a group of buddies. And do they turn up as much as you do. Have you tried hunting any of the wooded area's in your parks. I've found lots of old coins in those areas as well as the open groves.

    Awesome

    Dan the Wilver Man,

    Hey, buddy, I see that you are keeping that great streak alive. You are definitely the BEST park hunter in the world! Wow, 106 wilvers from one park...you better slow it down or there will be no more wilver for you a couple years from now. You are that good, dude!

    Have you seen the new E-trac? I bet you are thinking about upgrading!

    You must keep your streak alive! Go get 22, my friend!

    Keep your coil low and your passion high!

    Awesome finds as always my friend
    Hey didn't you hear what was stated somewhere else?......The guys that find the most silver are the ones who hunt in ferrous tones with no iron mask
    Dang buddy...I guess you and I are doing it all wrong. No wonder we don't find many silver coins

    WAAAHOOOO, the Captain's streak is still going...and going...and going...21 times to boot!!!! Dan, you are truly amazing! That park is getting cleaned out by the best park hunter ever! If you were detecting in 1970, you would have close to 20,000 wilvers by now. Heck, the way you're going, 20,000 wilvers is getting closer and closer!

    You, my good friend from SoCal, are the best!!!

    Now, let's keep that streak going!

    Keep that fever higher than ever, buddy!

    Kyle
    Those early PA settlers did too much and that is why coppas are found in abundance!

    The Three Datectateers will miles to find the Colonial "stuff"!

    Thats remarkable Dan. I dont hunt for silver much myself but I have done it in the past and been skunked more often than not at places that should produce silver. Your persistence and skill is definitely paying off. That park wont have any silver left when you are done with it. Future treasure hunters will be banging their heads against the wall trying to pull silver out of that park.
