Howdy--

My friend Kenneth and I decided to take a road trip to a town about 50 miles away. We found a lot that had an old boarded-up building and plenty of huntable ground on it. After we secured permission from the owner to hunt the lot we got our V's out and began to hunt . My first signal was the 1963-D Washington Quarter. Good start! I followed that find with smome memorials and clad. Then found a spot where I dug a few Wheat Cents. In one of the holes I dug a 1939 Wheat Cent and when I re-checked the hole with my pinpointer I discovered the 1943 steel cent. Although the 1943 is not a rare coin it IS a rare find due to the VDI range that it hits at. Just as I dug the 1943, a truck pulled up on the lot. It was a lady who asked "What are you doing? ? and "This is private property!" When I explained that we have permission from the owner Mr. X, she said that's her husband.Then she made a call on her cell phone and then said that we had hunted there long enough and had 10 minets to get off of the property. I guess I know who wears the pants in that family!! hahah We quickly packed our gear and left. We found another lot to hunt and with clad and memorials I dug the 1961-D Roosevelt.

On my next hunt we found an abandoned house that was not to overgrown. I dug 11 Wheat Cents - the oldest a 1927 and over $3 in clad. The best find there was the 1963-D Franklin Half. With the weather cooling off, I hope to get out swinging the coil a bit more often. Best of luck and...

Happy Hunting!

Thanks, sddavid! Most of the silver halves that I have dug are Walking Liberty. I've only dug 4 Franklin's in the last 3 three years. It is ALWAYS a treat to see a silver half in the bottom of the hole. Best of luck to you and...
