I was excited about my last hunt where I found 5 silvers so I had to go back there and see if I could find a few more.
I started detecting in a couple of areas that I hadn’t detected on my previous hunt. I dug a few pieces of fencing and some other junk targets here and there mixed in with some clad coins but I wasn’t finding any silver coins. Since an hour or so had passed I decided to go back to the spot where I had found silvers on my previous hunt.
I was finding wheaties here and there and eventually I got a tone that I thought might be a silver dime. I grabbed my video cam when I saw the edge of a coin that I was sure was silver and it was a ’37 Mercury dime.
Finally I was back in the area that was producing coins. Over the next couple of hours I managed to find 3 more silver Roosevelt dimes in the same general vicinity as the mercury dime. I also managed to find about 25 wheat pennies and some clad as well.
I thought that this was a neat find. It’s a Bear Cub Scout Neckerchief slide. Metal detectorists find these regularly, so I was happy to finally find one for myself.
All in all this spot has turned out to be one of the best places that I’ve ever detected. I could be wrong, but I suspect that this was a virgin area to a metal detector previously. If someone else has detected this area, then I can only imagine what he found if these are what he left behind…lol
It’s been awesome to finally find more than one silver on a hunt. I also got a few of these on live dig video, I just haven’t uploaded it yet.
Obviously, in order to get the silvers, you have to dig the trash… Those pieces of fencing and rifle brass shells kept foolin’ me. I did my part to clean up the environment by throwing this trash away.
Oh yeah, almost forgot… I got a hot tip on another spot that has some amazing potential for silver coins. If it goes how I think it should, I may have a new favorite spot… time will soon tell. ;)
Until then, stay searching my friends!
