First Bust half!!
This is my second silver find for the year , an 1836 lettered edge Bust Half!!! This is my first silver half find ever. Got it with my Ace 250, fitted with the 10x14" DD Excelerator search coil. It is by far my best coin find ever. I have hunted this site several times before and only found a lot of junk and some clad as it is next to my old elementary school. This was found near the creek that runs behind the school yard. I will wait until winter and detect along the creek.

My first platinum ring.

Then, 40 minutes later, I scooped up a small engagement ring. I picked the ring out of the scoop and looked for markings inside the band. I was very surprised to find the letters IRID PLAT. I had found m...

Awesome finds in Arizona
I bought my Garret Ace 250 from Keelyco in February of 2014. From February to July 2014 I have found many great finds. My best finds have been a 1935 Walking liberty half dollar. An 1899 V nickel, a Bull Durham charm and my best find so far an 1860 Mexico Jalisco Real coin. Note: Due to the ware on my coin, the image of the 1860 Jalisco coin was downloaded from the internet. Thanks Kellyco. ...
