What Will You Find?

A Jaw Dropping Experience!

My hunting buddy and I were hunting a new location that has never been touched as far as we know. We were in the mulch area that lies between the swing sets and 2 other play areas when I received a solid 42 on my detector. About 5 inches down revealed a shiny silver 1944 Walking Liberty Half Dollar. My very first silver coin! I didn't have my camcorder with me that day but he took a picture of it with his phone camera. What a jaw dropping experience!
