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.

Good weekday hunt, found 60 items, 58 coins, 7 quarters, 9 dimes, 2 wheaties 1946 & 1953, 1 canadian, 39 memorials, 1 really cool pocket knife and 1 awesome token badge.  This was a park south of lincoln and the wheaties where only down about 1/2" to 1" deep so we know there might be some silver there, just need to go back out and find it!
