Today's nice day brings a lady with Braided Hair home +

Was able to get out with my friend today and enjoy a nice hunt.
We where headed to a designated spot and caught the sight of another interesting spot.
Yard had been filled/pushed about 4" in areas (hit the brick original sidewalk at around 4") which made hunting fun as depths of coins where all over the place. Heck one of my neatest finds, the 6 star button (I never have seen a button like this before) was a good 9" but, some of the teen wheaties we dug where about 5"-6" then boom a clad at 7" lol. The LC was a deep coin at around 8"+.
I was able to snag a 1850 LC, the 6 star button, 3 wheaties 17,18 and ?, and what appears to be a clipped LC. It needs a serious soaking to even see what it might be.
Another fun note the owner told me and my friend to look at his old cars in his barn. Just like," hey go ahead stroll around". I felt like I was on Amer. Pickers looking into barns at things the guy wanted to show us.
Nothing like hunting and the owner insisting you look in the barns at his big boys toys. Then getting permission to come back at anytime is splendid.
My friend found quite a few teen wheaties. I hope to be able to get his GG re-wired as something is just not coming through clear on them at times (I suspect a wiring prob.) affecting his ability to hear the signals clear (it sounds like its only getting partial contact once you jiggle the wire near the ear cup).
Hope everyone had a great day hunting or not. :beers:

That large cent is incredible. SWEET patina :thumbup:



Here's the link to my field test post containing over 60 different hunts of various coil tests...field tests published in Western & Eastern Treasures Magazine...comparisons...nicer finds...etc..:

Been swingin' the coil since 1972

Started out in 1972 with a Jetco Detector...then the late 70's with a Whites 6000:whites:....then in 1981 went to a Bounty Hunter VLF TR 840:bounty:

Then in the early 1980's I went to a Whites 6000 Di Pro:whites:...mid 80's I went to a Whites Eagle II SL:whites:...Late 80's/Early 90's I went to the Whites XLT:whites:

1990's I used the Fisher CZ5, CZ6, CZ7, 7aPro, and CZ70Pro (still have)...and am currently doing some water hunting with my CZ-21:fisher:...

Started using Minelabs in 1999:minelab:

with a brief stint on the Musketeer while also using the CZ's...then in 2002 I switched to the Minelab Explorers and currently use the Explorer SE Pro as my main machine. I also use the Explorer 2 and E-trac often... and have a CTX3030 I use as a backup:minelab: Might also mention I have an arsenal of coils for the Explorers:thumbup:


"Metal detecting is an escape for me and allows me to find some much needed peace and solace.
Being able to clear my head...even if only for that short while...is much more meaningful than any amount of finds that end up in my pouch"

Very nice large cent! I would just rinse the dirt off and leave it as is with that beautiful, protective patina. Nice of the owner to show you his old cars. HH

Still has a nice patina mix. Edges show the worst.
It was a toss up to dust her or rinse her but, either way I will take her.
Thanks
