Just wanted to post up a season tally on most of my better digs. Last year I hit 70 silver coins on the nose and this year that count was more than doubled with 161 FTY of 2018.

I started at older sites but ended up getting an Equinox 800 and public parks and sports fields seemed to open up with lots of nice "modern" silver coins and jewelry so I rolled with it! Here is the pics of the goodies. I found another buffalo and V nickel after pics were taken along with 5 more IHP's.

Lol, I often wonder that too. Thousands? That's why you gotta respect anyone who digs a complete season consistently! Hard to juggle wife, kids and job while having this second job....haha. Thanks!

Thanks Thad! I wouldn't say my skill as the 800 seems to do all the work. appreciate the kind words and I've seen you dig some sweet stuff with your EQ too.

Thanks Tommy for always supporting and having a great attitude towards our hobby! Honestly, I'll be thrilled with 100 this year. My spots are already getting silent.

Congrats on a great year, especially the silver count :thumbsup:

Thanks Steve! Nothing old but it was a good time trying to snag the leftovers at the parks. Definitely a challenge. This year I hope to get back into some older ground.
