Hey Gang.......

Man did I ever have cabin fever! The weather was iffy this weekend with some kick butt wind......but I had to go!! I went to some of my outta the way places and did pretty well!

I was absolutely shocked to find the silver dollar. You just don't find those anymore and it was my lucky day. I really thought it was one of those gigantic washers and when I picked it up, I couldn't believe my eyes! :o :o :o It's the second one I have found. I also found the presidential dollar coin in the same playground!

The "Dora the Explorer" charm is really tiny! She'll fit on the end of my finger tip. And the gold hoop earring is actually .925 silver overlaid with 1/20th 10K........but hey......I'll take gold any day! :hello2:

I cleaned up on some clad too! Found a new school today that I must have been past 20 times and never knew it was there. It has two huge playgrounds! I found 1.75 in quarters under one swing neatly stacked on top of each other like they were in a roll.....but no paper. And gosh at the earrings! No pairs this time! :tongue3:

I had a blast and I'm tired as heck.......Hope everyone got out this weekend and found some goodies!
Thanks for reading and Happy Hunting!!

Moon

I seen a stretched penny. I always love to dig those. I seem to always find the ones from the machines around here but they are still cool.

Yes they are PF......I started a collection of them....I think I'm up to 6 or 7 now. They give the weirdest signals and it's always a nice surprise and it's usually followed by the same quote......"Cool!" ;D

Congrats on the gold, you do realize though that the earring is 925 or sterling that is plated in 1/20th gold. Keep up the great finds.
