Well, here’s one you don’t find everyday. As you know I have been trying the NEL Big coil out in areas where I have hunted before. It’s been pretty stellar.
Today I have about 1.5 hours to hunt a place that has been very good to me. I have spent a lot of time in this place. I have gridded almost the entire place out, which is fairly large. In the hot zones, I have gridded in multiple directions many times. In fact, I have probably pounded this particular rectangular areas like 20 times. Each time I have been very methodic.
Well, I decided to hunt this spot. I was moving along, trying to avoid the guy who was mowing, and hit an absolutely screaming signal at about 2 inches. I thought, what the heck, I’ll dig it. To my absolute surprise, I pulled out a 1973 Barbados 2 dollar coin. How in the world did this coin end up in Cincinnati?
Next I moved over to the area I have absolutely pounded in the past. I quickly got a faint tone that was bouncing into the 70s. I dug down. Then I dug down some more. And I pulled out a 1918 D mercury dime. I didn’t know this until I got home as it was encrusted. I was floored to get a silver in this area. The NEL Big continues to amaze!
Next I moved over toward a backstop area and got a 1947 D wheatie. I can’t wait to get back out!
