Amazing Luck

I was picking walnuts in a park in upstate New York. I had to meet a friend at 6 PM and it was only 5 PM and I was done picking walnuts. I had time to kill, about 30 minutes to be exact. Here I am in this 700 acre park, 80 percent which is heavily wooded and full of hills and valleys. So I am driving around and randomly pull over and decide to detect in a remote area. I walk into the woods about 40 feet, turn on my detector, walk about 5 feet. I got a good signal, dug it. There it was, a 1936 half dollar. Out of the 700 acres I happened upon this particular spot and got a walking liberty on my very first dig. Amazing luck indeed.

Congratulations on such a great find! I'd love to find one. I had one that my parents gave me and I gave it to my niece. Then when she got into college I find out she is pursuing some BS social justice degree. She posted some illogical things on facebook and when I pointed out the facts, she unfriended me. Wish I had that pure silver walker back!

I sure wish I had found it!! The larger silver coins i.e. half's and silver dollars are very difficult to find anymore. A great find!

I also am thankful for all of God's blessings. I am thankful to Him for such a wonderful hobby I am involved in and for the finds it sometimes brings me. Sounds like you've had pretty good successful finds yourself. Congradulations for sure and good luck with future detecting.
