Lisa B Makes a double Silver find to close out 2014
I went detecting for a couple hours yesterday and had a surprise, it was a 2 silver day! 1892 Barber quarter and a 1917 Standing Liberty. Both coins where in the same hole, under some twisted metal, 1 mason jar lid and a lot of broken glass. It was a spur of the moment hunt, only had my F75 and shovel in the car and had to hunt without a pin pointer so I really had to work for those two coins, but well worth the effort...
Tony C closes out 2014 with Four Rings
Tony C found four rings in the last days of 2014 not far from his place. I guess we will have to start calling you the Ring Master!
Tony C. finds Colonial GOLD on New Years Day!
Tony was trying out his new Whites V3I in Concord Twp and found a 1783 Gold 1/2 Spanish Escudo. Nice way to start out the new year and break in a new machine.
SPHRG Hunts at Strathmere, Atlantic City and Brigantine OCTOBER 25
Before our night hunt at Brigantine some of us visited Strathmere, NJ we didn't find much there so we moved up to Atlantic City and Steve R & Woody found some jewelry. Steve found two Silver heart shaped earrings and Woody found a Silver Heart shaped Pendant studded with 16 Diaminds on a Sterling chain. We then met Tara and Gary at Brigantine for the Night Hunt. We also had a great time hunting with Ray & Lauren at Strathmere.

Community Service Hunt Saturday 8-16-2014
This past Saturday we had 12 members attend a community service hunt to look for a lost Gold Ring. We searched and did not find the lost ring but we did find alot of clad and other do-dads. Tara found a silver ring, Mark found a musketball, Adele found a horseshoe and Steve even found an engraved pen belonging to the property owner. We will have to return another time to try to recover the lost ring.
