|Silver and Gold!|
Fast forward to today. It was cool but overcast out, mid-40s. I had things to do, but thought I would head out for a quick treasure hunt at a couple of local schools before I got engrossed in my chores. I fired up the detector and found the usual coins and trinkets at a playground, then moved on to another one. Same pattern there, but then a dime signal turned out to be this nice sterling manatee charm. Okay! As the hunting season is drawing near the end, I started thinking about what my find of the year would be. I had found 9 nice silver rings and a few silver coins to choose from. I never struck gold this year though, which is odd since I am approaching 3,000 coins dug. And many, many pulltabs, which are in the same range as gold. Oh, and over 250 nickels, which also ring up just like a gold ring. You'd think one of all those gold-range hits could have been a gold ring. But no. Until the last target today as I was walking back to the car.
Today truly WAS the day!
