Down town huntin today
Quote this message in a reply
Met up with my buddy Dan(Captn) and a couple other hunters Joe & Joe to try our luck at some oldies in one of the older parks here in LA . This park over the years has produced many a silver coin , jewelry , relics etc . Always like going back cause you never no what your going to dig from there . First we decided to hunt this one area where a couple years ago I had dug my Seated CC Dime . It was tuff and after a few hours all I had to show for was clad and most of those coins were dug in the 6 to 9 inch range . We were just about to call a lunch break when I finally dug my first keeper a 1944s Merc at only 6 inches . So lunch it was and after we decided to move over to a different section of the park to see if our luck would be any better . No more than maybe ten minutes of swinging and a couple digs later I struck silver again a 1954d Rosie at about 5 inches . This section of the park a couple years ago had about a foot of surface soil and turf removed so the coins we find in this area would have been way beyond our reach years back . The rest of my day was pretty much how I started with just deep clad and a few pieces of trash . Shortly before we called it for the day I dug my only wheatie a 1945s just under the surface of the dirt . Happy day for me and we all had a good time .
Thanks,
HH
Mike

Nice, Rat!!! Sounds like my parks. Gotta go at least 5, 6 inches to get any silver. I walk right past any signals 3" or less...clad or trash. Did you forget something???
You almost had the trifecta! Nice one buddy Yes Hope you're able to get out tomorrow, either way though, have a GREAT 4th!!!

P.S. - What's the tin thing the coins are sitting on? Did you find that today? That's cool!

Silver in the pouch is a good day in any park these days!!

Relic hunting is a whole new ball game. a silver every 2-3 months is not bad!! But when you get one, it is usually old.

Congrats on the silver!
