Another steady 40. That’s a quarter. I knew it wasn’t silver. I knew it had to be another sandwiched Washington. I dug my plug to get it. When I flipped my plug, I turned on my pinpointer and jabbed it into the plug. I checked the hole. Nothing. I checked my pinpointer against my shovel and it was indeed working. I jammed it back in the hole. I heard a beep. This was definitely a deep quarter down there. I dug the hole deeper. I tried the pinpointer again and I was right on it. With my gloves on, I wiped away some dirt and I saw a perfectly round piece of shiny metal. I got excited and continued to scrape away until I reached my finger under and pried it up. Is this just another spoon? I wiped it clean and instantly saw the word “sterling”. Finally! Upon investigation, I found it was made by J E Caldwell and had the initials EKM on it as well as a date inscribed reading “April 1907”. I couldn’t be happier.
