Posted by Nathan Schwenke on

Had a blast at a seeded hunt put on near Topeka Kansas by the Topeka Treasure Hunters Club.  This hunt is put on every year around the end of may and has about 100 people going for treasure, Nate the Digger didn't do to bad with a real nice 105 coin haul that included over 50 silver coins!  Can't wait until next year!

Went out for a weeks long treasure hunt and Bruce the Digger landed something he has never found in over 30 years of Treasure Hunting, a nice shiny 1900-s Silver Dollar! Found at a old park near Beatrice, Nebraska.  This nice old coin was also only 3 inches deep!  It might be a find of a lifetime.... for now anyway.
