The last two weeks has been mowing the pasture and anywhere else that needs mowed before winter. Then last week we had all for kids and their families home on the same weekend. After that it was clean up the house and other chores and back to normal. Today I was able to get for a couple hours! It rained .93 inches here Thursday so ground a bit damp and dust is knocked down.
Decided to go hit that old county park that once was a lake and now an outdoor dry park with various activities occurring. Spent over three hours sifting along at a slow pace hoping for an errant silver to jump up, nope, but I’m rich in old steel bottle caps!!!!
Managed 50c in modern coin that averaged 6-7” deep and missed by others and myself earlier. As I was getting close to my car I hit a 46 that was repeatable but sketchy at the same time. Ended up at 7-8” deep and that pretty copper green made an appearance. It was near where jkline pulled an IH last year so I held my breath and pulled it out. Took a bit of caressing but it turned out to be a 1919D so maybe I still got the mojo!!!! (The D is the rarer of the 1919 series but its not new truck time yet….😂)

Nice find on the 1919D! Next time concentrate on where you and Jkline found these two coins and hit it from multiple angles. There is more there. Good luck and keep us posted.

It's nice to find a deep one once in a while to confirm that the detector and your hunting methods are doing well.

Was out a few weeks ago at the school I found my first gold ring. Got a solid 45 on the Legend and indicating deep. Was sure it was a wheatie (maybe even an IH). Dig down a solid 8 inches and out pops a '64 Lincoln. An hour later and I get a shallow signal on another area of the field and pull out a wheatie at 3 1/2 inches. Go figure. I also dug a '64 nickel at about 8 inches. Must have been some fill in the past.
