We've been short on the wet stuff here in NJ. Haven't had any heavy rains in more than a month. Well, the skies finally opened up this week...big time. Got at least a few inches since last Tuesday Big Grin Today was a dandy of a hunt. Hit one of my old honey holes where I picked up a barber quarter & a merc last week, but, it was flooded, too rooty & tons of bugs, so, decided to try another good spot I have. Glad I did...

Not 5 minutes after getting there, I get a perfect 38 on the Safari - which is normally silver if its deep - about 3 or 4" down out pops a 44 merc. About 45 minutes later, I get a deeeeeep signal that was bouncing from iron to the 30's on the VDI. Dug down a good 10" and out comes an 1897 barber dime!

Also dug a wheat or two, some clad and the normal junk. Hunted a good 6 hours & my arm felt like it was gonna fall off. The skies started to darken too. As soon as I walked to my car & packed my gear away, I saw a HUGE bolt of lightning & probably the loudest boom of thunder in my life, it truly sounded like a 747 crashed right next to my car, that's how loud it was! I almost s@&t my pants, lol.

Then the hell began. One of the worst storms I've ever seen. I truly think a mini twister passed through. Hail, branches flying all over, buckets of rain. I couldn't drive, was sitting in the car hoping a tree wouldn't fall on me.

All worth it though...cause I got some silver Cool

It's great to read stories like this and gives newbies like me a higher urge to get out there and start exploring!

It's lucky nothing bad happened to you in that storm but it's great you found some coins out of it.

What would you say the value is of those coins you found on that one run?
