    That's a lot of finds for only 3 hours. Nice job.
    Did you try to take a bite out of that Kennedy half? Looks like a chocolate coin to me. LOL

    Nice finds, @paddyman98. Have you ever considered doing a Roosevelt dime album that's exclusively detected coins you've found?

    That's a lot found for 3 hours! In your first photo, is that Kennedy Half missing it's clad layer? Lol, I couldn't resist. Glad you had fun!

    I remember finding a proof Kennedy half in a sandbox years ago when metal detecting. I assumed(perhaps) the youngster got a birthday proof set from a relative and broke it out to spend at school... who knows?
    During the years of hunting I found 9 silver halves...Just imagine how difficult it was to lose a silver half...and, unlike now, at the time that was a substantial monetary lose.
