Actually, my 2008 has been very short. I only got a metal detector and started swinging on November 24. Just 38 days into the hobby, and here are my finds:

187 Coins Total

161 Clad Coins – $14.67
1 Kennedy Half
37 Quarters
37 Dimes
9 Nickels
77 Pennies

14 Silver Coins
1 War Nickel
4 Washington Quarters
1 Barber Dime (1912)
5 Mercury Dimes
3 Roosevelt Dimes

Other Historic Coins
1 Buffalo Nickel (1920)
11 Wheaties

I also found five rings. One 14k mother’s ring and a sterling silver rope ring. The other three were “costume” jewelry.

I hope it’s not just beginner’s luck, and that I’ll keep finding treasure in 2009! If it would just get a little warmer today, I’d be out swinging!
