Last sat. Went way out in the mojave desert, not far from where I found my 1830 large cent in 2012 off one of the old wagon trails. After digging tons of junk, I get a good signal near a large rock big enough to sit on. I look down and see a black disc sticking out of the sand. I pick it up and its a 1917-s standing quarter. Not far away my buddy brad digs 2 wheats (15-s and 19-s). We didn't find any other coins in that area. I did find a triumph emblem from 23-26 and in a wash I spotted a nice quartz crystal gleaming in the sun. Some of the junk I was diggin. Thanks for lookin!

You lucky dog! No gettin out here for at least another couple of weeks...if we're lucky. Is that the first big silver of the year?

Btw, like the new avatar. Good to see your mug Yes

P.S. - Triumph is my favorite bike. Ever since I saw Steve McQueen jump that fence in The Great Escape, I wanted one.

Looks like you got a model T Ford valve cover in that last pic - that's a cool find as is the T handled tool thing too ;-)

Are you speaking literally? If so, where are you? It's been one of the worst winters on record here in NJ in decades, but, I'm guessing I should be able to get out by mid March.
