A Sunday Dime Grand Slam!

Well-known member
All finds shown are from weekend hunts over the last 2 weekends at public sites. Machine used was my Minelab eTrac.
The dime grand slam came on the Sunday before last.
For those of you who do not know what a dime grand slam is, it is finding 4 different varieties of a dime in one day.
In this case I pulled multiple silver Roosevelt dimes, mercury dimes , the 1899 barber dime and the 1853 seated dime (with arrows variety) in the same day.

This last Sunday I pulled an interesting find that read like a deep nickle. It is that small "American Flyer" lead toy train.
From my research it is a 1920 Crackerjack toy made to commemorate Lionel Toy Train Company releasing their new Steeple Engine design train in 1920.
That large old flower pin was a deeper faint signal that read similar to an Indian Head Penny. I included a picture of that shortly after I dug it also.
That flower pin has some serious weight to it.
Thanks for looking!

You definitely know your ETrac well!!!
All these finds is not luck in my book, but persistence and skill!!!
Make me wonder how much stuff is still in the ground in all these “hunted out” places.
To be making finds like this consistently in public sites is incredible!!
Congrats on that grand slam!!!:please::please:

Thanks guys for the responses!
Chris, to answer your question, I have had only one other true dime grand slam over the years, also one that happened over a weekend and numerous times where I was one coin short.
