Got up to 35 degrees today so I put on the long john's and went up to the mountain top by my home here in northern new jersey. First coin was a1920 wheat. Ground is frozen and alittle hard to get into but the 2nd coin came up at 12-47 on the e-trac so
I started to chip out the top layer of soil about 2 inch down I got my first silver for this year a 1912 Bar. half dollar. Hunted alittle while more but nothing. So I packed it in and went home .

Bob, that hits the sweet spot for me!!! I've been hunting since I was a young punk kid, but seriously SERIOUSLY for about 10 years now, and I have yet to find a barber half. I think I would've had to wear a diaper home! FANTASTIC way to start off 2015 Party

Excellent coinage Bob. I wouldn't even try digging right now. You know where to go back when it's all thawed.
