Silver & Wheat's

Howdy--

My friend, Kenneth hunted a vacant home and dug a nice Franklin half, a merc and several wheat cents. Due to his age (he is 86 years young) and a disability from a 1950's oil field accident, he is only able to swing the 4x6 coil on his VX3. After he was satisfied that he had pulled the majority of the goodies from the site he invited me to take a shot at it.

I used the 9" spider coil on my V3i to get the depth that Kenneth couldn't reach. He already dug most of the goodies but I was able to squeeze a few keepers out of the site. Aside from the 1943-P silver Jefferson which was only 3" deep, the 2 silver dimes and wheat cents were between 6 and 8 inches. The jumping Jacks item was about 10 inches deep. I had a bouncy 60's reading on that and was really expecting junk. I'm glad that I dug it. I believe that the small coin beneath the silver is a play coin although I have never seen anything quite like it. Best of luck and...

Happy Hunting!

Thanks fwcrawford. I agree - no site is ever completely hunted out. There are sites that I have hunted since the 1980's and I don't hesitate to return with new equipment. We never get it ALL! Best of luck and...
