  1. Nice finds! One question, though. How were those tax tokens used? I'm guessing that they're pre-Forties?

  2. Back when you could buy a lot of stuff for a few cents each, they were used to pay the fractional sales tax. If you bought something for 3 cents and the tax brought it to 3.3 either the customer or the store was going to get short changed. Each mil was worth 1/10 of a cent, so you could pay 3 pennies and 3 mils tokens.

  3. Back in the early 70's I found an Oklahoma old age tax token but it was copper and the dig was an old abandoned farm in California.Those rings are very cool finds.

  4. hey man i u think u could email me some tips on finding some of these places u go. like what to look for and what not.. im having a lot of problems finding places around here. im also in oklahoma hunting.. [email protected] thanks

  5. Good stuff. I thought you were going to scratch a few of those finds…I cringed. Love silver!

  6. Don't count out the lower priced detectors I bought an ACE 250 and for starting out with in a couple months it paid for itself. My first real hunt I went to our local pool and cleaned up just on the clad quarters I left all the dimes and nickles I was worn out lol

  7. I was out for an hour and a half today with my at pro and got a silver quarter (1962), silver war nickle (1943 p), and 10 wheat pennies, along with some clad, a junk gold plate ring, and a 1930's golf putter head. I would call it a pretty good day.

    The most silver that I have found in a day was 4 so you beat me there Great finds by the way. 🙂

  8. LOL. I thought you were in Oklahoma because of the soil color 🙂

    I've spent a LOT of time digging around Stilwell Okalhoma.

    Oklahoma has a "lot" of Silver in the ground!! Happy Hunting……
