Jim Bennett's Finds in 2007

My brother Jim Bennett had a very interesting metal detecting year in 2007
finding over $2100.00 in cold cash. Pennies, Nickels, Dimes and Quarters that is!
Jim who lives in Emporium, PA in the summer months and Florida in the winter,
 found his "cash" while hunting in those areas.  He lives and loves metal detecting is literally
out in the field every day, jokingly calling it his fun job since retiring in 2005. In 2006 he found
over $1400.00 and this year was determined to break his own record.  He uses a tumbler
 to clean the money( except the rare stuff) so that he can put it in the bank.
 Jim uses an older Whites Eagle II model detector mostly for hunting although he also owns a Whites DFX.
