I’ve added several new silver coins to my totals this year. I nailed 3 Merc’s and a silver Rosie to add to my silver count. I also picked up a couple silver rings to boot! The weather has been predominantly cold making detecting pretty challenging, but it beats being cooped up in the house. On one of my last hunts I picked up a toasted Indian Head penny. After cleaning with lemon juice and baking soda I was able to see the date of 1893. I love finding Indian Head pennies and its a shame its corroded so badly. I still don’t understand why we haven’t been able to find more silver quarters. At the last place we hunted I found a 1918S, 1925D Mercury dimes, I thought for sure we would at least pick a silver quarter. It was not to be. I can understand silver half dollars and silver dollars, but there should be more silver quarters. I have a hard time believing all the silver quarters has been found already at these places. It must have been a blast metal detecting 20 years ago!

Daylight savings time has cut my evening hunt time down an hour 😦 By the time I get off work I barely have any time to hunt, dang it. I still managed to find two silver rosie’s and a wheat in the front yard of a 1950’s house tonight. I found another silver rosie in an old school yard last weekend. I’m still hitting the ground as hard as I can knowing time is starting to run short. I did find a sterling silver cub scout ring in the school yard too. I didn’t even know they existed let alone silver. Hopefully I will have additional finds soon. Best of luck!
