Foreign Silver Coin Found in Kansas City by Local Metal Detectorist

Foreign Silver Coin Found in Kansas City by Local Metal Detectorist

E. Rogers from the Kansas City area is still at it as usual.  He recently shared some pictures of items he has found metal detecting in the area.  This one is definitely worth sharing.  Ed tells us:

"Swingin' a little less than normal as my bride recuperates from ankle surgery. I did sneak out and lucked into a coin spill that included 2 silvers. I've been hoping to find a foreign silver coin and initially thought I might have a peace dollar. Wiping it off revealed a 1947 Peso, 14g, 50% silver. In the same hole was a 1948 Washington. I spotted both of these as I removed the plug. I put the hole back together swung over it and got a 26 on the Legend. Sure enough, there was a 1925 Buffalo in the same hole. That 1940 permission also gave up 6 wheats, a bike reflector, 1 Singer Centennial Decal 1851-1951, 2 keys, 1 key fob, a little cleo fishing lure and $2.72 clad. That's 52 silvers ytd. The Legend from High Plains Prospectors is crushing it! Thanks and HH!!"

Metal Detectorist Finds Mother's Silver Monogrammed Ring 50 Years Later

Metal Detectorist Finds Mother's Silver Monogrammed Ring 50 Years Later

Mark F. from South Carolina was recently using his Fisher F19 Metal Detector while searching his grandmother's yard.  He stumbled across a really great find only to find out it had more sentimental value than he initially expected.  Mark says of his hunt:

"While detecting at my grandmas house I found a small children's ring. Sterling with monogrammed initials. Upon closer inspection they were my mothers initials. I had found a ring my mother had lost as a child there around 50 yrs ago! She was super happy to have the ring back."

What a wonderful story to hear.  You just never know what you may come across when metal detecting.  We hear tons of stories where someone finds a ring metal detecting.  It is certainly rare that that ring belongs to a loved one.

Ring Lost in Snow Storm Recovered by High Plains Prospectors

Ring Lost in Snow Storm Recovered by High Plains Prospectors

Mike from the High Plains Prospectors Team recently helped a man find a gold ring he had lost.  Here is what he has to say about the recovery.

"Here is the wedding band and corresponding pic of the very polite young man and his dog from the last recovery I had gone on. He did not want his name listed, but was ok with these two pics being shown.  He had lost at a park near his home. It was during the last snow of this year.  He was at the local park with others when he decided to lay down in the snow and make snow angels.   Later that day he noticed his ring was missing.  Luckily his wife was video taping him making the snow angels, so they had a very good idea approximately where the ring could be, if he lost it making snow angels. They also went to other areas of the park.  So if he had lost somewhere else in the park, it might have made it very hard to find.   We went to the approximate location of the infamous snow angel a few weeks after he lost it. After just a few sweeps with the Equinox 800 and the Garrett Carrott it was found in the grass. The young gentleman was very appreciative and knew his wife would be very happy as well."

Great recovery as usual Mike!  We are always happy helping folks find their lost items.  It always makes you feel good finding gold but when it is to help someone out it feels even better.
