Thanks, Brierfield. I agree completely! No place is ever hunted out. You have a good hunting strategy which I also employ. Aside from using a different detector, a change of search coils is also often productive. Best of luck and...

Well done!

It's true that no site is completely "hunted out".

I went to a park that I had already hunted in half a dozen times. This time, came up with a 1928 Mercury dime just two inches down, right next to a sidewalk.

It's a spot I must have gone through before. Also it's a prime place where other detectors would have been, naturally. Along with being happy to find it, I'm still shaking my head and wondering how I could have missed it before then.

It really makes a guy think about his detecting technique, one of the best things of this hobby.

Cheers,

Joe

Nice finds. Post that coin to a couple of the relic forums and Facebook forums. They might help,identify what it is.

Thanks Gamma_Joe!

It's hard to say how you missed that 1928 Merc. Maybe there was another piece of metal in close proximity to that Merc and THIS time you hit it from a different angle and got the good signal? Did you change detectors, settings or coil selection? Did the surface conditions change at all? I remember an old "oil-camp that I detected in the 1980's with my first real detector - a Fisher 1260-X and thought that I had it cleaned out. Then a few years later I revisited that site and in an area 60' by 60' using my new Whit's XLT over 40 wheat cents and several silver dimes. I attribute that to new technology and experience. But who knows? Best of luck and...
