10 Silver Sunday Afternoon...

Hello All,

It's been quite some time since I've found this many silver coins in a single outing.



Somewhat unusual: I've never found 8 mercs and only mercs in a day. All the mercs are without mintmarks.

Also 17 wheats.

Nothing old or rare, but it was much fun to keep popping silver out of the ground, and to occasionally see a bigger size coin rim in the dirt.

Ground is still frozen in places, but pretty much ideal detecting: weather sunny and 50s, ground nice and wet, grass has not yet began to grow.

Chris

Absolutely amazing hunt- that's a good year or even career for some! Still got issues with snow & somewhat frozen ground on the Cape. Congrats on all that silver!

10 silver days are few and far between. Bet you were grinning from ear to ear.

As a kicker Franklin halves and standing liberty quarters are not common...Would go back as you may have missed a few...Great day for sure..
