Bucket lists are interesting, because we all want to find what we haven't yet found right? Some of mine are things that on the east coast are practically jumping out of every park tot lot, like:
Yes, many might be associated with East Coast searches .... but not all of them.

1- U.S. large cent
So far I have found 8 Large Cents and none east of North-Central Utah. Back in the latter 1970's and early-to-mid '80s I found 5 Large Cents in the greater Portland, Oregon metro area. In the late '80s I found an 1851 Large Cent in my favorite Utah ghost town. A year or so later I found Large Cent #7 at the old stage stop in Huntsville, Utah ... now a family homesite. Two years ago, on April 21st, I hit Large Cent #8 at the Eastern Oregon gold mining town we call 'Lone Tree.'

OregonGregg got one there in July of that year, I believe, and this month he found one on a WTHO in Toano, Nevada. An 1854 Large Cent was also found there on our 2015 WTHO by another fellow. They are not all 'Back East.'

2 - 1700's U.S. silver coin
Now, there's a better chance if I traveled eastward.

3 - Carson City minted gold coin or odd denomination like a three or four dollar gold coin OR a private minted gold coin (hey one can dream right?)
Yep, also a desired find, and a better opportunity if you live and hunt in California, too.

4 - An 1800's coin cache
I'd even be satisfied if it was an early 1900's coin cache.

5 - A Civil War era U.S. belt plate, officer or enlisted would be great, I'm not picky smiling smiley
A Civil War Era military buckle was found on our 2017 WTHO here in 'Lone Tree' in Eastern Oregon.

Right now the main thing on my bucket list is retirement and time to escape the family life to go detecting thumbs up
Wishing you all the best in retirement. I retired, but only after an on-the-job injury and the results of that, coupled with my other health limitations, left me with poor mobility and cut into my enjoyment time of detecting. I trust you'll do much better.

When I proof-read I had forgotten to add the 'S' mint mark. Now corrected.
