Howdy folks,

I got out to a permission yesterday. I had done a one day hunt a few years back and finally was able to catch the land owner to have another go. The 4'th signal of the day was the silver dollar. Only my second ever. 1922 S.

Not much else around it aside from a few spent bullets and casings. Its likely that a cowboy, rancher, or hunter lost it based on its location out in an empty pasture. Reach out and touch the west: I bet that would have bought a few drinks at the local saloon.

The rest of the day produced some nice western relics, but the silver dollar was the find of the day. Luckily I was able to get the find on film. I'll post a link to the video below once it gets put up.

Thanks for looking,
-NZ49er.

They're still out there. Both of mine were in completely unexpected areas. I'm sure they show up in yards and parks, but something that big is probably likely to be seen and picked up soon after it was dropped. My first was probably a hunter's drop. This one was out by it's lonesome in a pasture.

Congrats on the big silver.
It's been on my wish list for over 50 now.
Need the detector just to find it as it's so dusty/dirty now.
Thought I had one back a few years ago.
Turned of to be a service metal from WWll
