Default Big Silver Day!!

I had another great day hitting a couple of different parks on my week long hunting trip. First park gave up 2 halves, 1 silver, 1 clad. The Walker was in the same hole as a wheat and a silver quarter. I found another silver dime, the Cracker Jack token and a couple of wheats and then the park went cold on me. I drove across town to another area and the first keeper was a silver ring followed by a Merc. Not much after that except for a wheat and some clad.
I drove over to another little town to scope things out, turned out to be a bust. The town didn't even have a park it was so small.
I drove back to the town I'm staying in and went to a park that I did very well at last July. Not 10 minutes in I get another silver quarter, followed by 3 wheats. On my last pass, I look ahead of me and see some folded green, a $20 bill lol. I'll be coming back to this park tomorrow and spend the day looking for the keepers I missed last time.

Beautiful walker. And you got gas covered and a beer maybe. A 5 silver day is a goal for me. Hit 4 twice but never five. Hopefully soon. You crushed it.

Fantastic finds to say the least. I noticed a Cracker Jack Mystery Club token. I dug one of those a few years ago and they have an interesting story to them about how the Cracker Jack company used them to boost sales back in the 1930's. There's info about them online and make for an interesting read.
