Well I did manage to get out this weekend - will be the last hunts for the year - hit the canal Saturday and a park with D on Sunday. Didn't find much - just clad but overall I had my best year metal detecting. I found 50 silver coins and over 260 wheat pennies. Plus I got some coins off the wish list - and have some areas to hunt in the spring that look very promising. I will have the final tally soon and my goals for the new year. It will hard to top this year with the silver but now that I have the AT pro, I will be getting in the water next year - hopefully finding some nice coins, jewelry etc. Looking forward to that and maybe getting out in January to start the new season.
