But no cigar. I got out with Gerry today, and we hit a spot which has been giving up a lot of silver, relics & old coins. Not 5 minutes after getting there, I snagged my first merc, so I had a feeling it was going to be a great day, or all downhill from there, lol. Turned out pretty well. I got 5 silvers, and was trying for a trifecta, but as I said, couldn't pull it out.

Ended up with 18 wheats (not pictured), 2 Washington's (1956 & 1945), 2 mercs (1917 & 1939), an 1898 barber dime, and 3 injuns (1907, 1888 & a toasted no dater).

Also found a cool button with an image of a guy fly fishing on it, as well as an old cuff link.

Sorry for the lousy photo's, but did a rush job on taking pics.

Excellent day of hunting Joe. You and Gerry are definitely in a sweet spot, so keep on hitting it and collecting those great old coins. If  your site is the park you two hit earlier, it's very encouraging to know that good silver is still there to be found, and that the right equipment can deliver it.

Thanks, Shade. This spot is a rare exception for our neck of the woods, as very little, if anything, is over 6" or 7" deep. Normally, that's about where the silver/old coins START to show up. So, no special equipment needed or deep digging. Indeed, in this case, it's all about location, location, location Happy

Wow! Sign me up for a hunt like that soon. I am going through a bad silver drought , clad and junk are the order of the day . I guess I shouldn't complain too loud though , soon there will be frozen ground and snow ( sorry for the curse words).
  Thanks for sharing.
