    Excellent article and in reading I got to know Jonathan a little bit better. Tri-Star is a great group and I enjoy hearing about others finds and am so glad I joined.The camaraderie between his hunting buddies is priceless (Buttrey and Ford are hilarious) and what makes this hobby so much fun for me as well is sharing the stories and getting excited when even at the end of the day you are empty handed but your buddy found something. Those are some beautiful coins and the Walking Liberty a Holy Grail find.
