First Fisher F2 Silver Coin Find!

By: Timothy M.


I've owned my Fisher F2 for about a year and after practicing in the yard and finding pennies (2 wheaties), dimes, and strange odds and ends, I decided to venture out to local parks. Luckily there are no laws restricting local park detecting! So on my 41st Birthday this year in September, my wife and I set out to a new park we hadn't been to. After about an hour and a half I had found the usual pennies and dimes. Ready to call it a day my wife said, "You haven't even gone across the bridge yet!", which is where there was another 1/2 of the park. "Ok I said", and after about 10 minutes, got a "dime/quarter" bounce on the detector. I dug and dug and still could find nothing. After about 8", I found this! I had always dreamed of finding even a mercury dime or something! Here are the specs from ncgcoin.com:SpecificationsComposition: SilverFineness: 0.9030Weight: 27.0673gASW: 0.7858ozMelt Value: $17.15 (9/29/2013)DesignObverse: Armored bust of Charles III, rightObverse Legend: CAROLUS III DEI GRATIAReverse: Crowned shield flanked by pillars with banner, normal initials and mint markReverse Legend: HISPAN ET IND REX ... Also - from people I've spoken with cutting a silver piece was common place as to create denominations for exchange. This one looks deliberately cut. Whatever you do - just have fun. Try to be patient - you never know when or what you'll find!!! This once in a lifetime find has me addicted to MD!!! Thanks Kellyco!
