I never thought a 100 silver coin season would be possible, especially living in New England. The closest I have come was 88 in 2021. I'm happy to report that yesterday at 4:00 pm I dug silver # 100 for 2023, a 1945 mercury dime.

The last 5 coins were slow in coming. I was starting to believe that I would run out of time, or that the season would abruptly end due to a snowstorm. Thankfully, that didn't happen.
#96 - 1946 Rosie (dug 11/20)
# 97- 1942 Merc ( dug 11/27)
#98- 1914-D Barber dime (dug 11/28)
# 99- 1914-D Barber dime (dug 12/1)
#100-1945 Merc ( dug 12/6)

The 100 silvers include:


1901 Canadian " fish scale" 5 cent piece
1782 Carlos III 2 real
4 Walking Liberty Half Dollars
2 Franklin Half Dollars
1 Barber Quarter
5 Standing Liberty Quarters
12 Washington Quarters
1832 Capped Bust Dime
1891 Seated Liberty Dime
10 Barber Dimes
35 Mercury Dimes
19 Rosies
1847 Seated Liberty Half Dime
6 War Nickles
1853 Trime

Digging all of these coins represents 357 hours of detecting, and about 400 miles of hiking around in the woods. Gott'a say...I'm a little worn out!
Thanks for taking a look!

Quite the accomplishment fellow Mass hunter- Congrats! I agree it gets increasingly difficult to reach a milestone like that as every year passes. I have exactly 1 of those 100+ silver years in my almost 33 year career, so well done neighbor!
