Through the several decades I lived around Portland, most of my Silver Dollars and Silver Halves came from 'Bushwhacking' the brushy areas of Mt. Tabor, Washington Park and the one you've been thinning-out. So many times I'd ease myself along through the very brushy, toe-tangling ground cover and happen upon a few choice places in the old-use pathways, or a semi-level 'resting place' or 'blanket site' just off the paths that were once used for a picnic or ???

I just knew, when I saw your new post, that ... once again ... it had to be good. Congratulations my friend!smileys with diet Dr. Pepper float

Multiple Half-Dollar encounters just don't happen that often. The last time it happened for me was at an Oregon City school when I found 3 Kennedy Halves in a 'drop' ... two were 1965 and the 3rd was a silver '64. The last time I found a pair of Silver Halves they were a '68 and '71. Yes, they were both 90% Silver. The →'← represents the →18← in their date of mintage. I found the 1871, then checked the hole and the 1868 was 1½"-2" deeper and off to the side maybe 1".

I know the experience of the feeling you had and I'm certain the excitement of that day's adventure will likely draw you back once again in the very near future. I wish you continued success.
