Let me start by saying what a first 2 hours detecting! Got a late start yesterday, only had a couple hours so I went to an old turn of the century (1900) picnic grove, but was disappointed when I heard bulldozers at my spot, timbering. I said to myself now what? On a pure hunch, went across the street to what seemed like a nice spot in the woods, sparsely wooded but very detectable, saying to myself, looks like something could have been here! Ever had a hunch like that? Well, my hunch paid off!

Was there about an hour and got some really good signals. Multiple coin signals in this one hole a few inches deep were 5 pennies in one hole. 4 wheat pennies 1911, 1913, 1916, 1919, and one Indian Head 1898. Sheesh! Ok, yea I know they're only pennies, you know what I'm thinking, where there's old copper, must be silver, right?

So, I continue swinging and managed to dig up a 1925 Northumberland County 98 Dog License. I'll take it! Then a 3 ringer what I believe is Civil War bullet, correct? Then a lady's vintage pin or brooch. Then multiple signals in one hole again, steady quarter signals mixed with other alloy. Did a hole 3 inches and staring at me is multiple silver. I put the detector down and started feeling with my fingers. One Standing Liberty Quarter, a 1926, then another, a 1928. then another quarter 1928 again. Sweep the detector over the hole, a Buffalo nickel, sweep again, another Buffalo. Both nickels are worn, no dates. I haven't dug a SLQ in 25 years, now I dig 3 in one hole. Mind boggling!

Glad to share this with everyone, thanks for looking. MY BEST DAY DETECTING THIS YEAR!

Stunning! Those quarters are hard to find and even harder to find with readable dates. A day you will never forget.

Great outing. Not only do you dig 3 Standing Libs in one hole, but 3 Standing Libs all with dates. You just can't beat that. Glad you broke your 25 year drought.

Holly hell I’ve never dug SLQ’s that look like that much less 3!!! Those are in beautiful shape normally the date and beads are always gone for some reason the wore off easy. Yours are mint as far as that goes. I also love that dog tag!!!!
Congratulations on a dream hunt 🇺🇸
