Four silvers yesterday, couple other keepers

Got out yesterday. Tide was horribly timed, so I didn't expect much. Since tide was bad, the first hour there, I actually hit a nearby park. It was evident it was picked through, and there were hundreds of low tones. I cherry picked and found a few wheat cents, a buffalo nickel and a 1924 merc.



Got out to the Silver Beach, and got a wartime nickel, what's left of a sterling catholic pendant, and what started out as an old sterling band, but has since continued to flake off. who knows how much will be left in a few days. Looks pretty old too. Also an IHC.



Couple buffalo nickels and a few other keepers. Going out tomorrow. HH all!

    I think that Mercury dime might be the nicest coin you've dug all year.

    Very nice! I like that 3rd pic of "old water-found silver ring shedding its crust"

    The Merc is shocking: pcgs69 on green grass, digging a shiny silver coin! We haven't seen that in a while! image

    It was getting dark when that ring came out. It was crusty and I couldn't put my finger through it, so I just assumed it was some kind of lid. Upon cleaning, the obstruction was a rock or shell, and once that came out, figured there was a good chance it was a ring, and silver.



    It's refreshing seeing that bright silver come out of the dirt! First one in a while that wasn't black and crusty.



    Did get out yesterday to a historic property and found another piece of silver in the grass. Will post later.
