The Pile

Every year, I hoard all of my finds in a special finds drawer. I call it The Pile. At the end of the season when winter sets in, and I hang my detector up, I clear out The Pile and sort everything by type. The Pile is growing. Very satisfied. I was thinking about this today...

This pile only represents MAYBE 5 to 10% of what has filled my pouch. The other 90% being trash. A LOT of digging for this pile. This pile has probably taken me about 216 hours to accrue. Here's how I arrived at that number...

I hunt about 12 hours per week, on average. Probably a little more, but, I'll call it 12 hours. That's 48 hours per month. I started hunting in March - 4.5 months to present. 216 hours! Or, the equivalent of detecting non-stop, 24 hours per day, straight through for 9 days. Yep, sometimes I DO think I'm nuts Tongue

That's quite a pile and a lot of hours.  I wish I could find the time. I might get a chance this weekend.

Ohh hell yes that's a pile! The way you're going you're gonna need a bigger camera or another drawer. I do just the opposite of you Joe. I have everything separated out in chicken and beef bullion jars, spaghetti sauce jars, sour cream and cake icing containers. And cigar boxes for the big stuff. Got a whole antique secretary topped out full of stuff. And one container for Pittsburg Will which I'm filling with old pull tabs I find.Chuckle (Seriously!)

WoW!

Nice P I L E of stuff there Joe ;-)

That round object above the Buffalo nickel on the right - is that a Shield nickel??

Love the ring you found recently (and that large cent hiding in the mix)!

Okay - love all the silver too!

I've dug a lot of pulltabs, but only 1 or 2 of those original type.  I put that listing on watch to see if anyone actually buys it.
