I went to visit my 90 yr old grandmother today.  She lives in a house that was built in 1946.  I've never thought about running a coil over her yard but I thought, "what the hell."  I was pleasantly surprised.  The yard was torn out in the late 50's and new top soil brought in.  I found 2 Rosie's (1948-s and 1959-d), 4 wheaties and a silver earring.  The earring seemed like junk until I cleaned it and saw 'sterling' stamped in the back.  Thanks for looking.

Nice finds. I think any yard built before the 60s should have silver in it. Our house was built in 1950. I have found a handful of silver out back. Also a bunch of wheat, two Indians, and a buffalo. I see alot of deer out there too.
