I’ve set a personal goal for 2011 … 52 coins, relics, or jewelry pieces made of silver or gold.  I think it’s a modest goal.  One item for each week of 2011.

As I dig them, I’ll add them to this page.  Enjoy the pictures! And if you have any awesome, old places for me to hunt … shoot me a message!
