31 Baby!!!!

I hit my goal of 30 silver coins plus 1.  A year ago I wouldn’t have thought it possible.  Now I’m curious to see how many I can hit in a year!  If you think about the billions (I think possible) of silver coins made over the years.  I think it’s possible for 25% of them to be in the ground, right?  Its crazy to think how many has been found by us dirt hounds over the years.  I can remember when finding coin spills was the big thrill until I started hitting silver.  Tonight I hit a coin spill of 3 clad quarters and a clad dime.  It was nice, but not as nice as silver.  I can imagine  the headline in my local paper, “Local man found dead metal detecting after finding gold coin.”  That would be me, just the thought of finding a gold coin gives me the chills. I know when I pulled that 1887 presidential coin out of the ground, I started shaking as I cleaned it since it looked like a gold coin.  I couldn’t get it cleaned fast enough!  It wasn’t gold, but its still cool.  I hope everyone else is hitting their goals, if not, stay at it.  I live in one of the most heavily detected cities in Missouri (just go look at all the metal detecting clubs), but they haven’t found it all!
