It was teasing me! After finding 5 silvers last hunt, I thought cracking 2 more shiny today would be a breeze. Ha!

Was trying to at least hit 90 FTY, and needed just two. I got the Washington about an hour after I started hunting, and thought it was going to be another big day, but the silver gods weren’t having that. I didn’t get my second one until 3.5 hours later, and I was lucky to get it at all, as the ground (including my socks & shoes!) was sopping wet, and there was a lot of deep iron falsing again.

Wound up with the 43 Washington, 1911 Barber, and an 1891 injun, plus a scad of wheats, too.

I’m very happy, as it was a decent year, and my obsessive compulsive disorder is even happier, as hitting 90 FTY is a nice, round number, lol. We with OCD don’t like uneven digits Wink

Who amongst us will be the first to crack a silver in 2016??? We shall see…

Joe

Kudos to you--I'd say that's a good silver count. I've never kept track of mine, but I think I'm going to start keeping a count for 2016.  And you still have another day to go :-)

Sweet saves! I was hoping to hit 60 FTY but hit 86 and it looks like with the rain that is it! I may hunt tomorrow but with all this rain we have had I do not want to mess uo a yard. The old school is about the only place I can think of.

Nice Joe! Congrats on 90 Fty, it does sound and look a bit better, I'd have to agree.

I hope I find the first silver of the year! I've found my one and only silver (1896 barber) out of 3 months detecting like a month ago. I wish there was a buckle or nail fty... I'd be ballinYesCool

Perseverance pays off Joe! Congrats on 90 FTY!! I can't remember how many times I went home soaked to the skin and happy!! Have a great NEW YEAR!

And 2016 weather projections for January here are about the same as was December so look out folks! I won't get my Metroparks permit until about the 3rd week of January so I'm going to start hitting municipal parks until then!!
