Got out this morning for some long awaited metal detecting. Was dying to get out, haven't been out much this Spring. Hit this old picnic grove in the woods that I hit last year when I dug 3 Standing Liberty quarters in one hole. Well, I hit another coin spill today, first one was a 1918 Merc, a foot from the merc was this 1905 Libery Head V-Nickel, then a nice 1892-S Barber Quarter all within 3 feet of each other. The 1911 Wheat was found separately
