After last week's letdown, my hunt yesterday made me feel a lot better. Ah, the emotional roller coaster that is metal detecting Wink I hit an old park with that detectorist I met last Wednesday. To say it was a good spot would be an understatement. Coins 150, 200 years old at 6"! My best find is either a Draped Bust or Liberty Cap large cent, see if any of you can decipher which from the pics. I might give it a peroxide bath later, to help get a date. Rounded it out with a merc, a Rosie, a neat charm & about 15 wheats.

Joe,

Very nice hunt. See you're mounting up those silvers pretty good. AndreyNY kicked ass! Did he get all that in one day?

Got no idea what the copper coin is. There out of my detecting realm because there aren't any around these parts. I'm beginning to believe that IH's aren't either. Both very good finds for sure. Haven't heard about that peroxide bath. You'll have to elaborate on that one.

ps... I like the way AndreyNY cleans his coins. I do too after I shoot pics of them and make sure they're not real valuable collector wise. I like shiny silver.
