Cold Windy but # 5 and # 6 came to light!
Quote this message in a reply
Cold and windy today but # 5 and # 6 came to light, 1943 mercury dime and a 1964 D Roosevelt dime. 7 wheat cents and a 1928 buffalo nickle(it looks like a 28 but really worn), it was in the same hole with the brass key. Also a strange looking lock - It might have the word Conrad on the top. I need to clean it up some more. There is a shiny wheat cent in the photo that I rescued from the grocery store today - it is 1919. The oldest dug wheat was a 1934, the rest are 40's and 50's.
Get out there if you can and enjoy the hobby

That's a nice haul Tony! Everybody would be happy with results like that. Like you I always check my change---surprising how many wheats  are still circulating.

Thanks guys, I agree it is not easy getting elusive silvers to show the light of day.
I wonder about folks new to the hobby and how they cope with harden down park dirt.
Sometimes it is so hard - maybe that is why these little silver coins seem so well hidden.
For the new folks in the hobby:
Most of yesterday's wheat cents were not text book signals. One was even a one way hit but the sound was there.
The two small silver coins were very elusive - tiny signals and not text book high numbers. The display played a big role and then the sound.
Good luck - get out as soon as you can - spring wet weather is good moisture time .
