Big Silver Spill at a new permission!

I recently got a new permission at a 1937 farmhouse just 10 minutes from my house and decided to hunt for about two hours before dark last night. It's a beautiful little spot to spend some time swinging the coil. After finding a few Wheaties right off the bat, I got one of those beautiful silver high tones. I looked down at the screen and saw I had an 02-46 signal banging steady from all directions. Those numbers don't come along very often so I just sat there sweeping over it enjoying the tone and numbers. I then dug a five inch plug hoping this wasn't going to be another bazinga and immediately saw two coins stuck together in the dirt. I didn't see anything else in the hole so I pulled them out and saw it was a 1954 Rosie stuck to a 1946 Wheatie. I thought there was no way those two, even stuck together, could read 02-46. I stuck my pin pointer back in the hole and it sounded off. I began to get really excited and I dug my finger into the side of the hole and a huge silver half slowly slid out into the middle of the hole! I got the Foo out and saw it was a 1952-D Franklin half in beautiful condition. I could also see where the other two coins had been stacked on top of it in the hole. This only the third Franklin half I have ever found. I've found lots of Walkers over the years but those Franklins always seem to be the most elusive for some strange reason.

I also ended up finding three other Wheats (oldest one 1937), an old copper brooch and an art deco period watch band clasp. Gotta love finding big silver 10 minutes from the house. HH everyone!

Thanks Dave. The last half that I got with my E-Trac had been hit with a lawn mower and rang up 12-47. It was so nice to get that magic 02-46 on the screen and singing in the headphones.

Nice find! I've hit two franklins and 3 walkers this year so far and my first Morgan! I love seeing the big silver never gets old!

Thanks Mkus. Yep, very few things better than seeing big silver in the hole.

New permission!

I love hunting places like that! Nice job with the Franklin. :thumbup:

The silver halves and dollars don't turn up as frequently as I wish they would.
