Beach & Shallow Water Hunting
being a beach hunter I never thought I would find a silver dollar, but today I did. 1881 s Morgan dollar, it’s in really good condition coming from the ocean. A lot of sand has been moved with all the wind we’ve been having, it was two scoops deep right at the mud line. It was close to where I found a gold fountain pin tip a few hunts back. I’m guessing they both were from a house that got wiped out during a past hurricane.

Awesome!!! Congrats!!!
 

That's a nice-looking dollar!
 

That's a find of a lifetime! I'm sure you'll be going back to that spot.
I went back yesterday, and found nothing. I need the wind to lay down and I’m going to grid the area. I’ve hunted this spot for about 3 years and just when I think it’s hunted out something else pops up.
 

Outstanding Achievement
Congratulations on your success
 

Congratulations on a very nice find!

If there's not a lot of trash at the spot you found this in the gold fountain pen tip, you may want to think about borrowing a pulse machine for just the very deepest faintness signals. That spot could easily be a collection area for very heavy targets
