Sat Down, Then Took a Walk And Went To The Barber


Well-known member
Finds are from the last 2 weekends at a list of researched old public city parks, schools and fairgrounds I compiled that I thought may still have some deep targets. Everything was found with my minelab eTrac.
I pulled the sharp 1885 seated dime in a Minnesota city park on Sunday. It was every bit of an 11+ inch coin. The 1917 Mercury dime with the black stain (Was laying on a piece of Iron) as also a super deep one pushing 11 inches.
I was also running into the big silver last weekend as I got a first year (1964 Kennedy - 90% silver) Half as well as the Walker, Barber and Washington Quarter.
I have gotten a handful of 40% silver Kennedy halves (1965-70) but that was the first time I hit a 1964. They are hard to find.
I was also happy to pull that "G Man" toy badge (Made by Tootsie; Circa 1948-1950).
The rain stayed away last weekend so it was a great weekend to hunt other than being hot.
Thanks for looking!

Quite the finds. I'm up in MN, not sure how long, perhaps we can get together. Are you detecting with James quite a bit? Looks like the ground is super dry, how you dealing with that?

One of the best hauls I've seen you post Dave! That seated is spectacular. The non-coin finds are really interesting as well. You should run an Etrac Boot Camp, I'd pay to learn from you!

A great time for you and a great time for us just looking at great finds. So proud that they are now out of the ground and in your collection. The older coins, to me, have a look of artistry and patriotism. Now----zinc??
