    Hello CoinTalk friends and trolls :hilarious:

    New Youtube Video


    Yesterday I did a 6 hour Metal Detecting hunt at Highland Park. My 2nd time there and I did good!

    My goal for this year was to beat last year's silver coin count of 96. Last week I achieved that goal finding 11 silvers in a 4 day detecting spree which made my total 97 :woot:

    Yesterday's goal was to reach 100 silvers.
    I found 5.. I now have 102 :cool:

    Hope you like my new coin presentation format..

    The 1908 is pretty cool. I think I'm seeing all the letters in LIBERTY. Must have been AU or better when lost. Looks like a great park to go back to.

    Some really nice finds there mate. I would like to detect in the US one day for coins for my collection. Here are some silver finds here from Norway. 1 krone 1877 and som skillings from 1662, 1711 and 1720. Only got 19 silvers and the goal is 20 for this year. The last year with silver coins here in Norway was 1919. So hunting US silver coins is a lot better lol

    Awesome. The silver Gods are smiling down on you. Congrats passing the 100 mark. How much did your metal detector cost ?

    @paddyman98 - I told you you would break the record. Nice job, but you are making next years goal more difficult. LOL

    Congratulations! Someday, I'll hopefully join in the metal detecting. Come to think of it, I live on a military base and saw two people detecting in a pair on base. I wonder if they found anything...?

    That looks like a miniature dreidel in the top left, although it appears to have more than four sides.

    If it is, how appropriate as Hanukkah begins today.

    It has words on each of the 6 sides. One side states TAKE TWO.. I believe it is a top that is spun. Here is a close-up and something similar I found on the internet..

    I would love to hunt somewhere else besides the US. After so many years of finding the same silver coins over and over again.. It gets drab :yawn:
    I need to find something else! :watching:

    Awesome! Nice to see that places are not hunted out. I just bought a Vanquish 440. I have been using Garrett and Bounty Hunter, and hoping to take the 440 out for a run soon.
