Sweet Silver and Coins Found Near Old Nebraska Home
David G. from Nebraska recently shared a story about a great day he had metal detecting around an old house. David writes:
"Today I had one of my best Dirt Fishing days so far. Using my Equinox 800 purchased from my favorite dealer High Plains Prospectors I hit the Jackpot! This house sets on about one Acre of land, so there’s lots of ground to cover. I’ve hunted the yard on 3 different days now, probably about 12 hours of actual hunt time altogether. Up until today the only high value coins I’ve found was the 1926 D Standing Liberty Quarter I found yesterday and a 1944 D Wheat penny.
Today, I hit the Bonanza, in one 10 ft by 10 ft area I found 1899 Barber Half Dollar (the first one I’ve ever found), another Standing Liberty Quarter (1917), a Barber Dime (1905), a Buffalo Nickel (1918), and another Wheat Penny (1917 D).
I was having a ball after I found the first coin, the Barber Dime, I started scanning around close and got another signal that turned out to be the Baber Half Dollar, then another Standing Liberty Quarter, and then the Buffalo Nickel. I can’t get over finding the Half Dollar, what a find. Thanks High Plains Prospectors for hooking me up with the equipment I needed for a fantastic hobby!"
