Found Silver and a Wheatie today...

Today I was in a Good mood for detecting, went to 4 Parks. The first one is just around the corner from my sisters house and this is where I found the silver ring (seems like these rings I find are bent out of shape). I don't know which park I found the 1946 Wheat. This first place I found .74 cents in clad. The second park found .99 cents in clad, plan to go bact to this area tomorrow to search around some bleachers (soccer field) this area is a Catholic school that is not being used except for church sales. The third park I searched last year (kind of out of the way) possibly not much here but turned out to be the most in clad $1.26. Since it was still early I go to the 4th and last park for the day, this park is an area where many go to water fish. Here I found .28 cents and an old fishing weight (this was found in the picnic area).
