What Will You Find?

My First Silver Coin

I bought the Ace 250 about 2 months ago. I really only have to time hunt after work before the sun sets, or on the weekends. Last week I was hitting the park across from my apartments, and had dug up 2 wheaties from the early '20's. I was swinging away when I got a solid sounding signal. The machine knew for a fact there was something good there. I dug down about 3 inches and saw the edge of the coin. When I pulled it out saw "1911" I began to shake. I took it inside cleaned it up well. It was a 1911 Barber Dime. My first silver. Thanks Kellyco for a great opportunity to fall in love with a new hobby.
