I know I don't post every time I go hunting or every time I find something interesting but I figured I'd post a little report on some of my recent milestones.

My 7th sterling silver fork

A nice 925 ring as my 50th dug ring.

I found an 1882 Indian head cent to add to my collection.
(Not my oldest found coin, but my oldest found IHC.)

And my 6th collar insignia, this one being from the WW2 era.

Thanks for looking

Nice finds! 7th silver fork wow. I've found like 40 pieces of flatware, but all plated. Someday I'll find a sterling silver one. Congrats!!

Keep at it, you will. I found mine all in the same city park and there were a lot more that were plated than sterling. I just dug every piece of nonferrous trash there was after the first one turned up. The odd shape makes them sound a lot like canslaw. I really think a house burned down and the remains were burried in place.

Excellent variety so far this year.
7 silver pieces of flatware in one year is quite impressive.
Congratulations.

Thanks guys. To be clearer, the totals are since I started detecting in Sept. 2015, but the forks were all found roughly in the span of a year. I don't hunt as often as I did when I first started but if it's between 30-90°F, I want to.
