205 silvers in this year

I did not start the year with any goals as to amounts, etc., but in late November I was at the 180 mark, I have kept a spreadsheet of 'finds' for the past 6 years, and decided to do my best to get over 200 for the year. Today, hunting with good friends, I managed to get 7 out of the same hole! Later about 20 feet away wI got the 1900, 90% silver, 5 Centavos. Between us we got 9 silver coins and 3 silver rings off the same lot. 5664 coins this year is a load for me. I turned 75 in September and am looking forward to that new Equinox to take a load off my sore back. The CTX has been a monster for me for the past 5 years, 822 silver coins with it and over 34,600 coins total, but I need a lighter machine.

Thanks Guys! I am just north of Houston, Spring, Texas. Retired in 2002 from the FAA, controller, supervisor and manager for 35 years. I get out maybe 150 times a year and have right at 870 silver coins since mid 2012 when I got the CTX. I hunt 99% demolitions. I started keeping track of my finds on a spreadsheet and pics with the phone, and am a tad over 34,700 cons with over 11,000 wheat pennies. Here in Houston they tear down at least 10-15 a day, many from the early 1900's. I find them by using the City of Houston Paid Permits section to get the demolition permits, then research the age of the house by using the online property tax appraisal site and looking up the address and owners names from that.
