Abandoned House Silver...

Howdy--

I had some luck yesterday. My detecting buddy, Kenneth, and I first went to an abandoned house that we had hunted before. The city mowed the yard which previously much of it was un-huntable. At that site I dug 9 Wheat cents and in the back yard near the pool I dug over $6.00 in clad - mostly quarters. We decided to move on and look for another site to hunt. Kenneth at 84 years old has a good eye for spotting good detecting sites. He saw a house that had the "empty " look. We knocked on the door and spoke to the owner who said that the building was a dentist's office and that he was going to have it demolished and that we were welcome to detect it. Kenneth, dug 5 silver coins: a 1939-S Merc, 3 silver Roosevelt's and a silver Jefferson. I dug a 1958-D Washington Quarter, a 1935-D Washington, a no date Liberty Standing Quarter, a 1942-S silver Jefferson, a nice 1939-S Jefferson and the Lord's Prayer Which I believe was originally a Lincoln Cent that had been rolled. I also dug some clad and a few wheat cents. We finished up at the third site which was an older house - probably built in the 1940's. Kenneth dug a 1943 Merc, and a 1957-D Roosevelt and I dug a 1934 Heavy Motto Washington Quarter, a 1954-D Roosevelt, 2 1951-D Roosevelt's, one of which looks like it had been hit with a lawn mower, a 1943-P Silver Jefferson , a Sterling Silver Donald Duck ring and a Virgo Key fob or medallion. When I got home I counted the wheat cents and I had a total of 27 - the oldest is a 1928-S. Also had a total of $13.25 in clad. There is still a lot of hunting to do at the last site. We didn't get to the back yard and much of the front has not been hunted due to overgrowth. We are going to give it another try Wednesday - I might take a lawn mower with me! I was using my V3i with the 6x10 coil. Best of luck and...

Happy Hunting!

curious though...do the silvers in your area always look dark/stained like this when you dig them??
most silvers i have seen online and in person are really shiny right in the ground

Howdy doc holiday232. Yes, Kenneth is an inspiration. He was in an oil field accident that nearly cut him in half in 1956. He was in a wheel chair for nearly 6 years and since then has had 2 knee replacements and a hip replacement. You can't keep a good man down! He hunts with a Vx3 and uses a crutch with angle iron affixed to the bottom that he uses to walk and dig his targets. If he has a deep target, I'll dig it for him. He is thankful to be alive and reads the bible daily. Best of luck and...
