Swingin' a lot less than normal as my bride recuperates from ankle surgery. I did sneak out yesterday and lucked into a coin spill that included 2 silvers.

I've been hoping to find a foreign silver coin and initially thought I might have a peace dollar. Wiping it off revealed a 1947 Peso, 14g, 50% silver. In the same hole was a 1948 Washington. I spotted both of these as I removed the plug. I put the hole back together swung over it and got a 26 on the Legend. Sure enough, there was a 1925 Buffalo in the same hole.

That 1940 permission also gave up 6 wheats, a bike reflector, 1 Singer Centennial Decal 1851-1951, 2 keys, 1 key fob, a little cleo fishing lure and $2.72 clad. That's 52 silvers ytd. Apologies on the picture quality. Thanks for peeking and HH!!

Mexican coin., I believe. Great finds...!
That one hole gave up a bunch of goodies!
Give the little lady a hug from me, and tell her to get well soon!
I'm likely up for surgery on my left shoulder, so I'll be in sick bay for awhile, too...! =[

Thanks, Crash,
I've been unable..., mostly, unable to detect "every day", like I used to,
so anytime I sneak out of the house, every swing I do come with mixed feelings -
Pure joy to be hunting again, and the Pain
that I've been feeling....
I was rewarded yesterday with two coins - a clad dime and a 1940-s cent;
o Porcelain Cupie Doll's right leg and a dropped WRA co, 45 Colt cartridge
with a stamped "W" nickel primer...!
Boy, the lead of the bullet was super corroded...!
All this in a 10ft sq area...! A great hunt! :thumbsup:
