New silver coin record for me!

Decided to try the woods just off the edge of the park we normally hunt, we hadn't been there long about an hour and I hit this hot spot where I found four silver dimes in about a thirty minute period, two dimes where in the same hole. After finding two in the same hole I went and got my brother to join in on the fun and while he was standing only a few feet from me I found another two silver dimes in a twenty minute period.
None of the coins where that deep, three to four inches, so it was just I got lucky that day. Most likely the same person lost all the coins on the same day, they where that close together.

Great finds. I would pound that area to death. There must be a silver quarter lying there somewhere.

Nice job. I agree on your theory that they were all lost at the same time. The wear pattern on them tells a story. The 26 Merc has the most wear followed by the 37 having less wear and then the 43 and 44 having very little wear. They were probably lost about 1945. A great 4 silver day.

Very nice finds it’s strange how you get those days where silver just keeps coming I had a great day last week on vacation
One morning got 3 but one was a seated 1876 CC quarter I was in shock!
I’ve never found a CC coin in CT or my father he’s been detecting more than 40 years!

Excactly my plans! My thoughts are there hasn't been much detecting in the area because these four dimes we're metal detecting 101. Never know Mike, there could be even better than a quarter in those woods.

Still looking for my first liberty seated coin, maybe it's hiding under one of those big oak trees?
