Hi Folks
A couple of days ago I had seven silver day at one of my permissions.

I didn't realize at the time that this was a part of a much larger spill of coins...

Today I went back to the same area and well.. It was epic, and I don't use that word...

There were Walker and Franklin Halves, Buffalo's and Jefferson's, Wheats, Roosevelt's, Mercury's, slq's and Washingtons and about five pieces of clad...

I did some facebook live videos if you would like to check them out

First half of the spill..

and then my logging friend used his skidder to move away some of the debris and rocks above and I discovered more..

Totals
24 Washingtons
1 Standing Liberty Quarter
8 Walking Half Dollars
2 Benjamin Franklin Halves

Don;t feel bad Todd, nothing pre-1800 in the mix so you probably would have taken them and tossed them in Gary's direction anyway . . . . . :clapping:

:drool: congratulations on the "silver lining" !



Fear is paralyzing and courage is liberating. No matter what is put in front of you, there is always a way to make it work.

Dreams are just dreams, goals are dreams with deadlines. The desire to succeed comes from within. Stay focused on your goals, and if people say that you can’t do something, get them out of your life and move on.
