It was the last day of hunting for 2013, the ground had already begun to freeze and it was cold. I was out in an old ghost town in Eastern Oregon. Was not having much luck and then towards the last hour of my hunt I hit a great sounding target. VDI was saying silver dollar. So I chiseled away at the frozen ground and there it was, a 1891 O Morgan Silver Dollar. What a great way to end the year and it was my first silver dollar ever. Thanks White's for making such great machines.
