I went out for an hour and a half today. I have permission to hunt an old house a block away. Usually I run my Explorer SE around 27 manual give or take. It was really chattering today and I settled on 19. There are power lines along the road and I blame those for the chatter. Being patient paid off as I found a half dozen coins in a small area. The best was a 1902 Indian head penny and the others were memorial cents a clad quarter and a clad dime. The coolest find was an old brass key with a fob from a long defunct jewelry store in Waverly Iowa. Wish I could post pics!

Might try this in different areas when hunting as it might help..

Well...Good news and bad news. I struck out at the old fairgrounds. The ground was pretty dry and I don't like to dig when it is too dry. There were a lot of kids there so school must have got out early. I went to another small town and went to a park I last hunted in 1977. That park has been hit pretty hard. When I got there I noticed they scraped about 4" of topsoil off a patch about 12'x20'. The rest of the grass was quite tall and needs mowing. In that little strip I dug my second Indian head penny. It was a nice 1898. Also a 1920 wheat,1930 wheat and a 1936 wheat. There was a half dozen military 30-06 cases,too. So I did end the day on a positive note!
