Default Sterling #20 FTY. A Little Turquoise.

Life's been hectic. Detecting time minimized. I'm stuck at 81 silver coins FTY. I'd like to get to 100. No silver today, but a fun productive hunt in the heat. Hit an old street tearout I've been stopping by every chance I get. Was only able to find some old glass and a crusty 1925 Buffalo. Then found a promising curbstrip that gave up a lot of clad including 4 old wheats. Also found a little sterling and turquoise butterfly ring. 20th piece of sterling I've gotten over this year. Thanks for looking.

Thanks! 82 came today. Just a Rosie, but it counts. On to 83.

Hope to round that 100 silver corner before snow comes.

Thanks. I do like old bottles. I dont run across them often. No markings but undoubtedly old.

Good report, and nice dig for #20! You've been pulling a lot of goodies this year. The best part of the year for detecting lies ahead too.

Glad to see you're back in it. I can't seem to find anything but .925/sterling, 61 so far this year, but only one silver coin. As it cools down maybe you can get the other 19 to make the 100 for the year. I'm looking forward to seeing you make it.
