While hunting buddy Ronstar was trying to put venison in the freezer, I decided to go to a usual haunt. A block a way, I stopped to chat with a friend taking a walk, then a friend of hers walked by-- my friend said to her friend, 'you should let him detect your yard!" She was down with that, but warned it had already been detected and that the dude found an IHP there.

A 20x20 yard, and I started doing my thing with the etrac and Elmy's 1-10 program. 11 wheats, a playmoney dime and a Rosie later, I was done.

All of the coins were 3" or less-- I could pinpoint them with the carrot before digging, they were that shallow. Most were literally surface finds.

Went home and was surprised that what I thought was a partially tarnished clad rosie was a slightly corroded silver Rosie. 1" deep. All coins dated to the 50's.

Always check!

Funny thing is, the deepest coin at 7" was an 80's Rosie.

I wonder if the previous detectorist was only going for deep signals-- hard to say. I don't really care about pennies and nickels, but nobody wants to leave silver on the table. Just because it's shallow, doesn't mean it's clad!

Nice 20 x 20 piece of turf. I am often literally amazed how frequently old coins are so shallow and new ones so deep. Oh, and how frequently a wheat cent turns into a Memorial cent on the way home. Nothing to do with old eyes, I'm sure. Good on the silver and wheats. HH jim tn
