What Will You Find?

1916's Walking Liberty Half dollar!

I sure do love my E-TRAC... it is a silver finding machine! I have been metal detecting for over 20 years now, and the E-TRAC keeps pulling out the goodies all over the place! Just a couple weeks ago I was searching some lawn area near the University of Oregon in Eugene Oregon - an area I had hunted before, and I found a 1916's Walking Liberty Silver half dollar! This is a KEY DATE coin!

I took it into the local coin shop to show it off and the coin dealer offered me $200 for it! WOW...

That same hunt I also dug a 1899 Indian Head cent, a Presidential Golden Dollar Coin, and a costume jewelry Giraffe!!
