RECORD SILVER COIN DAY !
Well, today's WILD adventure actually began on Tuesday with a FB message to a buddy of mine about hunting his yard. ( 1920s) He gave his blessing, so Juan and were off to do some diggin'.. It did not take long at all before we both scored silver. I hit a 5" screamer and out climbs a Merc dime.. then Juan tells me to come see this.. he has a 1963 Rosie.. a few wheats follow, then i have my 2nd and 3rd silver dimes,, same hole ! SWEET.. Juan finds a killer toy badge beside a huge oak tree.. it was a junior "G men " Melvin Purvis.. very nice relic.. ended up with 4 more silvers from this yard and YES i was on cloud 9. We broke for lunch and some cool off time. next we drove over to the historical district. the city is in the process of making a huge new parking, so needless to say there has been ALOT of scraping here..... this area dates back to the mid to late 1800s. so being Recharged, we park and do a little walk around.. yes, we went back and got our detectors.. :) right off the bat i get a penny range signal.. all targets here were shallow!!! thank u city for scrraping most of the trash away.. now, for the penny signal . 12- 43 on the my E Trac. 2" thinkin it would be a wheat, i get another silver.. this time it was a 1902 barber dime.... Juan pulls a back to back, with a nice Pre war lead cowboy figure and then walks over to me and says Gotcha !! a Huge gold ring. band was broken , but atleast 14-18 kt.. awesome, wtg buddy.. ended up with 2 more silver dimes there and a first, had to ask MR. relic, ( juan ) turns out it is a Petitcoat weight ( button ) circa 1870s . we are def. going back in the morn to hit this place harder..
Hit a old house lot that we all have previously hunted. But city has done some scraping as of lately, so we were off to see what is not being masked anymore.
First off its realy trashy here and super dry. First 2 finds were clad quarters. One by me and other by my son. He is getting pretty good with his new XTerra 305. I get a penny/ dime signal down about 5 inches. I was hoping for a silver dime but out pops an Octagonal Aluminum Palmolive soap cake token. While sitting under the canopy of a HUGE magnolia drinking some water, Ethan comes over and says " whats this daddy". Wow!! You have a medallion or token. His first old relic. Very proud !! Then he takes after his old man and pulls another relic. It turns out to be an 1800s , early 1900s stocking clip. Had a great time making memories with my boy.
Had a 3 week stint of working almost everyday. Was very anxious to go detecting but didnt have any new places without word of mouth or door knocking.
So i called up my buddy to see if he was up for some digging. Well he was and we decided to hit the OLD football field we have done well at before. By the time i got there he had some clad and 2 pcs of bling. One junk with believe it ir not 24 K clasp. And a plated/ Silver ring.
We had some rain the night before but the ground wad still SUPER HARD. The ol' E Trac did hit on 4 good targets for me and they were deep. 7+ inches. Wheres my shovel!!!!! Managed to pull 2 more silvers coins and Juan got himself one too. Mine were Mercs and his was a Rosie. Other notable finds were two wheaties.
