What Will You Find?

All in One Trip!

I have found a lot of great things both in the ground, and in the water in 2011. My best coin ever is a 1942 over 41 Mercury Dime found in April of this year, my best water find was a group of finds found during a three day water hunting trip to Lake Michigan. I found almost three troy ounces of gold, and a lot of silver coins and jewelry. Look at the pic of the group of items I am submitting. Everything was found in that one trip.
