got out this morning for some door knocking. first house was a good one ! hunted for about 3 hrs. and first target was a 1916 wheat cent. second signal was a screamer. guess it was gonna be a 1916 day because the screamer was a pristine Merc. but not the famous D. pulled another merc later after a few more wheats. hit the 1800s with a 1890 V nickel. got permission for the house across from this one. will hunt it tomorrow. hopefully history repeats itself.
GOT OUT THIS MORNING FOR A SOLO HUNT. FIRST HOUSE I KNOCKED AT WAS A GO. THE FRONT YARD WAS SPLIT BY A SIDEWALK TO THE FRONT PORCH. STARTED ON ONE HALF GRIDDING IT OUT. FIRST FIND WAS AS EXPECTED. WHEAT CENT. FOUND PATCHES OF IRON SO MY E TRAC WAS NULLING ON AND OFF. SECOND FIND WAS A TEXTBOOK 12-13 @ 6 INCHES. NICE 1926 BUFFALO NICKLE. ENDED UP PULLING 2 INDIAN HEADS, ONE IN CONDUCTIVE AND THE OTHER IN TTF MODE. TOTAL FINDS WERE 10 WHEATS, 2 INDIANS AND A BUFFALO. RAINS CAME AND HAD TO GO. BUT THE HOME OWNER SAID I COULD LOOK AGAIN. SO ITS OFF TO THE SIDE AND BACK YARD.................... STAY TUNED
1903 Barber dime.
went back to the lot where the V nickel and Indian were dug. called hunting buddy Juan to see if he wanted to meet up. he was park hunting, so he was close by. at first it seemed we had go all the goodies the first go around. finds were minimal, mostly trash bits. then i got a zincy signal around 5 inches. thinking it could be another indian, I was all over that. it turned out to be a toy gun. soon after i got a shallow penny signal. finds were meager so i said " why not ! " well I'm glad I did. got myself another silver for the year. 1903 Barber dime. picked up a few more relics from the yard. Juan did recover a Nice Green 1920's wheatie.
my meager yet decent finds
met hunting buddy Juan this morning for a 6 hr. adventure into the past for some "retirement diggN. " the first few empty house lots didn't turn up much except for the expected shallow modern coins and trash. As we were making our way to what would be the best lot of the day, I got a 5" quarter signal on my E Trac. thinking this was gonna be my first silver of the day, I dropped down to dig and retrieve my prize. finally getting through the maze of roots, first decent find for me would be an aluminum stamped good luck token. once we finally got to searching the " best " lot, the desirable finds started to show up often. wheats from the teens, a Chinese coin, more tokens, a 1911 V nickel, and a 1898 Indian head cent . no silver ( again ) for me. but had a great time diggin with my friend.
Juan's silver dime
got out today with hunting buddy Juan and my kiddos. we hit a couple lots that we both have done well at. first thing, I'm diggin' an iffy signal an Juan walks up and asks me " what is this thing " ( of course jokingly. ) turns out its atleast a silver Barber dime. it looks to have been in a fire. only legible thing is ONE DIME on the back. he also found a couple wheats. I only came away with 3 wheats myself.
