I love Big Silver!

12 Apr

For my lunch hour hunt today, I returned to the site where I found the two Mercury dimes yesterday.  A couple of swings into the hunt I got a broken signal that was persistent enough that I investigated further. After listening to it carefully, I deemed it diggable due to a certain silk in the tone. My Deus was indicating a deep target with barely a pip in the horseshoe (if you hunt with a Deus you know what this means).

So I dug a 7 inch hole and nothing. I dug one more inch and I got a hit with the Garrett pinpointer.  I dug 9 inches and with the entire pinpointer in the hole, I was still getting a hit. Finally, I dug one more scoopful of dirt and out came out this dirt ball with a large, beautiful reeded edge sticking out of it. I was shocked because by the time I had dug the 9 inch hole I was convinced this was a chunk of rusted iron.

I took pictures of the money ball but they were too blurry to be of any use. Luckily, the hand shot came out nice and focused:


1943 D. The last Walker I got was back in December of 2012. This is only my third Walker ever. All three of the Walkers were found in the same general area. The very first Walker I found, I found with my Ace250 about 50 yards from this one.



I am 14 silver coins short for the year so I need to hustle and find more!

Thank you for looking!
