    first silver FTY - seated half

    I've been out a total of five times this year - too many other things going on. I went yesterday morning to a spot in a hammered park where a few years ago I found a seated quarter and a CW era officer's button. The conditions were not good, the dirt was bone dry, and the grass was high. i...

    silver medal - 19th century?

    I haven't detected much this year, only about 12 times. Found this on Monday and thought it was worth a post. I was detecting an old park in an area where I've found old stuff before. We've had some rain lately and a few cold spells so the grass is laying down. I was getting good depth...

    nice barber quarter

    This one checked off a couple firsts for me - first New Orleans minted coin, and first pre-1900 barber coin. I was hunting this morning in a wooded area in an old park. The soil is very moist due to a summer of rain and the weeds are almost gone, thanks to the deer. I got a good...

    SLQ and indians

    I went out this morning for only the second time since June. Too much rain this summer, and I can't take the humidity and heat. The first trip last week I found an 1868 Indian, my first pre-1870 Indian. Today found two Indians only a couple feet apart, 1889 and 1892. They're in good shape...

    couple finds

    I've been out only twice this year due to weather (frozen ground in first half of the month). First trip I found a lot of clad, but no old coins. Strange thing is that I hunted an area I have hunted many times and still found 11 clad quarters, and only a couple were shallow. Don't know how I...

    weird signal, but it's silver

    I continue to hunt a wooded site in a park where I have found a lot of silver coins (30+) over the last year, but the finds are getting scarce. The last four hunts here I have been digging more nickel signals. Still finding some deep wheat cents, 2 or 3 per hunt. Yesterday I went out for 2.5...

    silver among iron

    Finally cooled off here, but no rain for three weeks so it's too hard to dig in the turf. I went back to a wooded area in a park which I've been hitting on and off for about year. Hunted for two hours with just a couple wheat cents (1942, 1952) and a bird band. Then I got a signal which was...

    coin spill and "medal"

    Hunting the woods again at a park. The Jamestown tercentennial medal from 1907 was a loud signal like a copper cent. Not too deep. I found some similar pieces online, but the reverse side of mine is in bad shape, can't make out the picture. The coin spill was one of those crazy signals, I...

    pair of Mercs

    This morning was the third time in the last two weeks I've hunted this wooded spot in a park. I've found at least one keeper each time. Today was a two hour hunt, with nice cool weather (75). There's a lot of poison ivy here, I got a few spots on my arm two weeks ago, but the Tecnu took care...

    pocket spill saves the hunt

    Things are a bit dry around here, so I went to a wooded area in a park this morning rather than dig in the turf. I have hunted this area before, but I thought it was worth another shot. Went almost two hours without a single coin, then got a silver-sounding signal, but the numbers were jumping...

    one piece of silver

    I went out to a park this morning, but the spot I intended to hunt was being used for a large party of some kind with bounce houses, clowns, balloons, etc. I moved to another spot which didn't have many signals, not even much trash, but I did hit this pendant which I believe to be sterling...

    toasted 1852 large cent

    I tried an old park this morning that I have detected 4 or 5 times before. I haven't found a whole lot here, but once found a 28mm copper which had no detail left. Today was kind of wet, we had a lot of rain yesterday. Things were a little muddy, I only stayed for 1.5 hours. The LC really...

    silver pocket spill

    My first silver pocket spill and first time I've found two silver quarters in one hunt. I went this morning to an old park which is more of a neighborhood park, no parking lot there but there was on-street parking. Not much trash, either. The two quarters showed a depth of 9-10 inches and...

    Good short hunt

    There were a few sprinkles this morning, but I went out and they stopped just like the weatherman said they would. I didn't have much time, only hunted for 1.5 hours. First tried an open grassy area next to a ball field, but the grass was a little high and I think the area may have been...

    windy day - 2 mercs

    The same storm dropping snow in New England is causing steady 20-25 mph winds with gusts to 50 mph down here. No snow though, just a little rain yesterday. I went out this morning (38 degrees F) to an area in a park, and hit a couple lawn areas that I hit years ago, before I really knew how to...

    65 degrees! silver and LC

    beautiful day today - went out for almost two hrs. to take advantage of the weather and moist soil. Perfect day for detecting. I was digging only high conductors today. Right off the bat got a faint signal at 7 inches. Saw the shiny quarter in the dirt pile, was hoping for a Barber or SLQ...

    sterling ring and naughty token (G-rated photo)

    Hunted a couple hours Friday morning in the woods at a park. I concentrated on higher conductive signals because of all the trash here. Only three coins, all cents. Thought I had a silver quarter, but it was this x-rated token made of aluminum. Then had another cent signal, but found the...

    first Franklin half

    A little chilly this morning, 38 degrees, with a steady 20-25 mph wind blowing. I wanted to get out one more time before the Turkey day holiday. Started out on the lawn area at the park, but we are in a drought situation and the digging was hard. Also out in the open the wind was tough...

    Mixed bag - silver ring

    I hunted two spots today, the wooded area I've been hunting for a while, and the foul territory around a ball field. The ground is extremely dry now, I may just wait for some rain before hunting again. Found some clad and the silver band at the ball field, the ring was just 4 inches deep, a...

    sterling scout ring, silver quarters

    I went out to the woods at an old park this morning. This is an area of about three acres which had some activity until the 70s, when it was abandoned and became overgrown. 50-75% of the area is not huntable, due to thick brush. For some reason I continue to find silver quarters, but not many...
