Item Found: Silver

Location: Maryland

Metal Detector Used: Other (800-0300)


April 1st, 2013

Dear White's,

On our way to hunt an old store and house site on Maryland’s eastern shore, I mentioned to my buddy that I only needed one more US silver coin to have a hundred.

Since we had gotten permission and previously had good luck there, I was confident that I would find a mercury or a barber dime. After digging some wheaties and Indian heads I decided to try my luck along the bushes next to the road.

All of a sudden I got a faint but solid hit on my XLT that read in the ninety’s. After digging my first plug at seven inches it was still in the hole. The second dig was the same, but when I looked in the hole I saw a reeded edge of silver.

To my amazement I pulled out a 1924 peace dollar!!! I called my buddy over and we couldn't believe that my 100th coin would be a dollar. Although it isn't the oldest or most valuable coin that I’ve ever found, to me the memory and this coin are priceless and something that I will never forget. Thank you so much for your detectors!

Sincerely,

George
