Slayed the silver again today two dimes, a war nickel, quarter ANOTHER walker and silver charm. That is 3rd walker in 7 days time. 4 of the silvers came from house My buddy got 6 silver at this week. Unreal week, best week this year hands down! This week netted me 14 silver coins a sterling ring, and the little charm stamped .925......I am on cloud nine!!!!!!!
last two nites after work I hit a couple houses, last nit got wheats, 2 silver dimes and a 1917 buffalo, tonite I hit another corner lot, got 2 mercs, 1905 indian and world's ugliest sterling ring (well to me anyways lol)
Last nite BadJim and I hunted two houses after work, one STUNK and the other didn't lol. Got ANOTHER walker!TWO days in a row, I am amazed!
Also got a merc, a Rosie, 1902 Indian, marble, some wheats and a badge shaped thing that says confederate monument Augusta, GA, I cannot find any info on it except the monument was built in 1875, so no idea how old the medal really is. Looks old but just can't say for sure. I am pretty happy to say the least!
Yesterday I hunted an old house with a buddy of mine. I actually hunted this property 5 yrs ago with a whites MXT and at that time I only got 2 wheats and one merc. This time was way different!!!! First pass along the sidewalk I got an iffy signal, bouncing around a bit and it was a 1900 indian with 3 nails in the hole, about 3 feet away I got a classic 12-41 wheat signal showing 6" deep, well after battling thru the roots out popped a 1864 2 cent piece, I about flipped out!!! I did NOT expect that at all!
Shortly after got a solid 12-11 signal at 3" it was a 1889 V nickel.....I started digging everything that beeped after that, got some wheats, the toy wagon and the 1934 merc. That was about it for that yard. After that we hit a curb strip in front of an older home and I got the walker it was no more than 3" deep, hard to believe no one had found that one! Last stop was another curb strip in front of an old building and the first target I dug was the 1899 indian, great way to end the long hot humid day!!!!!
Had a pretty good after work hunt. Jim and I hit an old house that was a corner lot in town. Got some wheats. Two Indians super nice 1887 and a 1897. Two v nickels 1898 and 1889 it is toast almost completely smooth. One silver Rosie and a nice old button back mark is Waterbury button co. And front says in HOC SIGNO VINCES.
BadJim and I hit and old farm yesterday and I went across the whole front yard and got nothing but 3 wheats, So I wandered over to the side yard out in front of the barn, the first strip I walked down I got a 6-7" deep 12-46 I was thinking hmmm a silver quarter possibly, but nope, out popped a 1850 Braided Hair LC, I was shocked to say the least. Its always nice to think your digging a quarter and a large cent comes out instead! Couple minutes later I got a solid 12-41, was expecting a wheat, but surprise number two, when I saw a silver, turned out being a 1899-O barber dime
Little while late I got one bell, a buckle then I got the 2nd crotal bell and that was about it there!
Last night met up with a buddy and we went door knocking, we hit two places got a yes at both houses. I found a bunch of wheats and clad not pictured, 3 injuns 1889, 1898 and 1902. A 1912 Half Penny, neat printing plate with a man in a suit. And probably my favorite find is the key fob item, JB Ford was in business from 1890-1940, I have searched google and can't narrow down when it was made for sure.
Do you believe in Karma? I sure do! A friend of mine got into detecting a yr ago and he found me on facebook and asked if we could get together so I could show him some pointers. He told me he has never really dug anything old. So I said lets go door knocking in the old part of town. I got permission for us at an old house, I found a few early wheats and he wasn't getting much, I got a solid 12-45 on the etrac and the depth was right..... so I called him over and told him to check the signal with his xterra. He did and told me his machine said it was a dime, so I told him to dig it, I was pretty sure it was an oldie, well he cut the plug, flipped it over and right there was a beautiful condition 1917 merc shining back at him, he was estatic and tried to hand the dime to me, said it was mine as I found the signal.
I absolutely refused and said no way, I gave you the signal, you dug it......, YOU keep it. Lets just say he was pretty thankful as it was his oldest silver ever, well I believe in karma and knew something soon good would come my way. We hit a second house and the goodies started flowing, first got an indian, the tiny toy car and the CW era heart heel plate in the front yard, went to the sideyard got 4 more indians, oldest was 1881, several wheats with oldest being the 1909, 1929 Canadian cent, and then I nabbed a no date SLQ.....there ya go, Karma just paid me back!
We hit one last place and I got 2 more wheats and the 1943 quarter. We had a fun day, we both got indians and silver.... I was able to show him several pointers on his machine and detecting in general. Don't get much better!
