What Will You Find?

484 Silver Coins in 2011

A few friends and I like to metal detect on evenings and weekends at homesites and local parks. These photos are coins that I have found through the year of 2011 and my ending total was 484 1/2 silver coins ranging in years from 1964 back to 1829. The 1829 was a capped dime and also found at this home was an 1835 capped half dollar. Oh bye the way if anyone was wondering about the half it was a mercury dime clipped in half which I thought was an interresting find myself. Well thanks for looking at my story and happy hunting to all hope you find treasure too.
