Safe to say I had a great day. Tied my best silver day ever with 7. A buddy got us on an amazing permission that I've been drooling over for 2 years. Permission was revoked when some of the siblings/co-owners of the property had a problem with us digging there. Had an amazing 2 hours though!!!

Congrats on the great digs! Multiple silvers in one hunt are good ones. I'm had a similar experience in getting kicked off a property....some decades back I asked permission to walk a corn field for points...had two of my youngins with me....stopped, got permission from the old farmer, spent a few hours and found a few things. Out of the blue his adult son comes screaming at us, practically foaming at the mouth, to get off his land...I explained the situation, but when we got back up to the barn the father denied he ever gave us permission. People can be turds.

Man, that really sucks that they kicked you out, but I think sometimes elderly people aren't exactly sure what metal detecting actually entails. Things like that are why I have practically quit metal detecting. Permissions are just so hard to find today with all the criminals and malice toward older and innocent people. You just can't trust anyone anymore. Congrats on the finds.

thank you professor!

yeah that's ok though, I understand why she made us leave. Her brothers are co owners and they didn't want us there. We cleaned up some good coinage in the short time we were there

pretty darn awesome! and very good to manage to find what you did, you know that there has to be more there. you never know, stranger things have happened and you might get to hunt it again some day.
thanks! I wouldn't mind going back but I can tell that the current owner/owners won't let us.

Great hunt Cjon, I have never gotten 7 silvers in a hunt, most of them are really nice too, especially the two Barbers, wtg on the wheats & Indians too, congrats on the saves & HH
thanks man!

A shame that they pulled your permission, but that is one heck of a haul for the time you had- Congrats!
thanks! Hard to beat these 2 hours, and the place is literally like 2 minutes from my house!

Thanjs Dave, sucks cause this place was loaded, and never hit! We only covered about 1/4 of it and we did it quickly. I'm sure there's way more there! But I get why the brothers wanted us to leave, oh well...

Good job thats great for 2 hours too bad it got revoked always another permission
thanks, that's the plan!
