Default Show me your Trimes

Come on everybody, post your pretty little 3-cent silver coins here, with details on how you found them.
Mine was in June of 2013 during a 30 minute hunt in the "driveway" of a house which was recently torn down.
That afternoon, I also found 5 silvers in a park construction project.
That evening, I found a 10 gram men's gold ring in another park, one of my favorite detecting days ever.

This is a find I will never forget, found on the 26 of March 2018.
This is the place that 3 of us, Silver Bullet and Michdig and I had been hunting since the last few months of 2017. This was giving me an erratic signal in the higher 70's and never touched the 80's and showing about 6, 8 inches deep on my AT Max. It took a while to find and when I finally located it, it was on it's edge, a tiny little silvery looking thing with reeded edge.....man I wish I woulda taken a picture of that. I still can't get over how tiny they are.

4th of July 2020. Like he said. 79. Bouncing signal. A good 6 inches down. All I knew was it was something, not silver. When Iím at an old spot, I dig everything and often, it works out !

I found 6 trimes. For me that was easier than trying to put pictures on any forum, or finding anyone that knows how to do it.

No, I can't, I can never remember if it's one "L" or two. But I can spell conspiracy. Never trust anyone from east of the Mississippi.

Yup. The "trimes" nonsense is no different than the LC nonsense.

Yup. As further proof that it is ALL the same coin being sent back and forth to each other, notice that they ALL have the same start with the shield thing in the middle. Notice they *all* have the Roman numeral III on them. And they ALL have the silly backwards "C" around the III. If that doesn't tell you that it's all the same coin, then what does ?

This is BEYOND coincidence, and just reeks of the same coin changing hands, and being re-posed for various east-coast hunter posts. We don't need any other evidence !

The trime is one of a few coins that would cause me to break out into an impromptu song and dance. I don't care how it would look. The nice thing about metal detecting is that you really can't embarrass yourself any further.

Iíve had three different guesses on that date with three different years! I would need a nuclear microscope and it still wouldnít help. Iím just sooo happy to have found one! Damn it !

I found my one and only trime five years ago in the middle of the woods. It's still one of my favorite finds ever - such a cool, weird little coin!
