If you have been thinking about purchasing a detector, perhaps you should make that purchase and cash in on silver prices.
Coin sales have been exploding as the price of silver and gold prices increase.

I don’t know of any other hobby that can bring the extra “cash” with as much fun as metal detecting.
With persistent and a bit of energy you can dig your way to silver coins and jewelry.
You don't have to buy a metal detector that has all of the bells and whistles either. For a few hundred dollars you can buy a new detector that gives you everything you need to get started. There are metal detectors that are reasonably priced, that even the pro's use.
The skilled user with an inexpensive detector will find more items than an individual who is not skilled and has an expensive detector. Anyone who practices with their metal detector will have success.
There are so many areas to search for silver coins and jewelry. I have hundreds of areas researched that I will never have time to get to. If you love reading history...that's an added bonus to finding areas to metal detect.
The history of where you live is a great place to start. Read old history books about your area. Often times these books will mention places that were frequented by people. And any place where people congregated, they lost money and jewelry.
With silver prices at an all time high, metal detecting becomes even more fun. I can't think of another hobby that gives so much pleasure, and where the rewards can be so high.
