BACK TO THE PARK


 
I went back to the park where I found my first Indian penny for the year and I managed to find 2 more along with some clad.  1 for sure is in the 1800's and I think the other is too but I can't pinpoint a date yet.  I have been trying to clean them and then I will post some pics.    Still detecting in January - thumbs up!!

STILL DETECTING IN JANUARY


 
 It's the middle of January and I'm still metal detecting.  I manage a hunt last weekend finding my first 1800's coin for the year and some more wheat pennies.  I'm trying to get a date of the Indian head penny but I know it's 18 something.  
I plan on getting out this weekend as the weather is still being nice.  Hopefully I can get some silver.

ON BOARD WITH SILVER - 2021

 



  Well it's the new year and I actually got to detect - No snow in January so far.  I did manage to get on the board with silver finding a mercury dime plus a wheat penny.   I also found a gold plated chain medal.   I'm not sure of detecting today as it has rained a lot and the ground is very wet.  I also found clad.

HAPPY NEW YEAR - I hope this year is better than the last.  I also hope to do a better job of  updating the blog.     Then bucket list this year always starts off with finding gold - jewelry is nice but a coin would be better.  A caped bust silver is always on the list along with a seated quarter or half.  I had a nice silver count last year and hope I can improve on that.  I didn't get to travel like I wanted too but things look to be improving on that.  As long as I can get out and detect - that is what it's all about.

ANOTHER LARGE CENT IN WOODS





 

 I went back to the woods where I found a 1853 large cent hoping for some old silver.  It wasn't old but it was silver - a war nickel and I did manage another large cent.  This one was 1822.  I still think there is some old silver in there and I will give it another shot this weekend.

STILL ABLE TO DETECT

 Well it's December and I'm still able to detect.  I had a nice hunt last weekend finding a war nickel and other goodies.  I'll take this all winter if we can.   I can dress up for the cold.
