New Silver Coin Finds Record and Another Walker

​Sadly, I didn’t hit my goal of a 100 silver coins for the year. I did manage to break my annual silver coin finds record.  I managed 87 silver coins this year compared to 84 last year.  I’m pretty proud of this accomplishment considering I live in an area of “hunted out” parks.  There’s no such thing as a hunted out park unless all the dirt is bulldozed and removed.  The Etrac has been a silver finding machine for me.  I cannot stress enough, learn your machine.  Two years ago when I first bought the Etrac, I remember wondering if I wasted my money. Then I started doing my part by researching old parks, hunting the whole park, not just the common areas.  I found my third Walking Liberty half dollar in area of a park nobody would have guessed it would have been there.  It was by itself with no other coins surrounded by pieces of tinfoil.  Who knows why, but I was glad to find it.  I’m determined to hit a 100 silver coins, so it will be my goal for 2017.  Good luck and happy hunting in 2017.
