Howdy--

Being the fateful 18th of April, I had to pay a visit to my CPA. Well, his office is only about a mile from that abandoned house that we hunted last week. I figured that I would load up the V3i and get Kenneth and see if we could squeeze a few more coins out of that front yard. Darn it I did not load up a lawn mower so we had to swing the coil in open spaces. My first signal gave me a 1961-D Roosevelt. Good way to start! Then I dug some memorials and a total of 4 wheat cents - all dated in the 1940's. A man from across the street came over and talked to me about detecting and said that about 30 years ago his father lost a large gold ring in his front yard. I told him I'd be happy to look for it for him. I searched his yard for about an hour with no luck - a few clad dimes and PLENTY of pull tabs and Budwiser bottle caps. I told him that the next time that I'm in the neighborhood that I'll give it another try. It was 90 degrees in the shade and there was no shade so I went back to the truck and drank some ice cold gater aide and rested. for a few minets. About 10 feet from the truck I kicked down some weeds and got a crisp 89-90 reading that pinpointed with 2.5 kHz dominant and dug down about a half inch and was rewarded with one of my favorite coins designed by Adolph A. Weinman - a 1942-D Walking Liberty Half. I dug some more clad and memorials and my last signal of the day gave me another Adolph A. Weinman coin - a 1944 Winged Liberty dime. It VDI'd at a solid 79 at 7 inches with 2.5 kHz dominant. It sure is fun to be the first person with a detector at a good site! I hope that you all have the same experience! Best of luck and...

Happy Hunting!

Thanks Jimmy. Yes, it was a fun hunt! Be patient on digging a Walking Liberty Half - you WILL get one! I hunted for 5 years before I dug my first one in 1990. Since then I've dug quite a few of them. My oldest one is a 1917-S but my oldest Half is an 1867-S Seated Liberty. Best of luck and...

Happy Hunting!
