Hope everyone had a great Independence Day! We had a great Saturday my daughter got married so I had a busy weekend to say the least so Monday Am I got out at 6am.
I went back to the old mental hospital and decided to work a very large grassy area that borders Long Island sound..
I was using my equinox and the amount of clad here is incredible then a solid 33-34 tight signal I knew it sounded like a half and sure enough when I cut the plug and at the bottom of the hole was a black half staring back at me! My first walker of the year! 1920 boy was that a good signal and sight I hit a area along the sidewalk and had two more masked but repeatable one way high tones which were the two mercury dimes 1943 And 1945 mixed with lots of old pipe and ceramic pipe a few old buttons and one mangled sterling ring and a tiny sterling pendant which is half the size of a dime and was 6” down the nox hit it like a silver dime no problem.
And also found the 1974 Kennedy half And a knotts Berry farm token from California and a bunch of clad coinage this spots only a few miles from my home so it’s nice and close found the 1777!half Reale here last week so it keeps me coming back.

Congratulations to you and your family!
Wow you found a ton of clad and congratulations on your first Walker of the year. I’m sure there is much more waiting for you there.

Boy the ground there is not so nice to silver! And three half dollars in one day? Dang!!! Got confused with the young ladies and thought you slid into eye candy….. reread the story and figured that out kinda quick 😂. Good outing on all fronts, congrats!!!

Thanks Only two halves one clad it’s very close to the ocean salt air probably why they get so black just like beach silver ..

It's the same with the 1700's field I'm hunting with coppers and silver is black but I'm not near the ocean 🤔

Hey Mark,
Nice job on the older half dollar. They don't come up often these days. A person's day is made after hitting one of those.
I don't mind one bit if they come up black and tarnished as it adds character.
Sounds like you are on a good old site.

Thanks Dave this spot is tough and this particular area I just pulled 4 nice silvers from the half Reale being the oldest I even got a seated quarter here mid 1800’s so one never knows what will pop out of the ground next here are some photo s of this interesting spot…
