Soccer has finally ended, and now it’s time for me to get back into the hobby I so love. I got out Saturday to a small, hidden park in an old spot. Unfortunately, they had added a layer of soil on top and all good finds were out of reach. Just ended up with clad.
At lunch today, I headed out to a spot in the woods that is hard to access during summer. I have found probably 40-50 wheats in this spot and 3 silver. I went back to the same general area, armed with a good trash program for the Deus. It wasn’t long before I started hitting wheat pennies amidst the trash. I got a pretty nice higher tone right in the middle of a bunch of trash. Real small area of high. I dug down and pulled out a St. Christopher necklace piece that is sterling. I just love finding silver. It never gets old.
Time was slipping away fast, so I started heading back through the woods. I got another nice tone and pulled out a 1943 mercury dime. I was stoked. I had been over this area in the past. The new program was working well! I kept going and got yet another higher tone amidst trash. Out comes a 1947 silver Rosie. I ended up with 6 wheats and 3 silvers. I will take that anyday!
I’ll be heading back to that spot to clean more out soon.
