Back to the Big Hill

Back to the Big Hill with my friend Tony today...I think our first targets came simultaneously, I called him on my cell and told him I found a 1927 Buffalo Nickel, and he told me he just found a 1943 war nickel. I thought that was kinda found 3 Silver dimes...1926 and 1927 Mercs in the same hole, and then a 1910 King George Canadian Dime. I also found 3 wheats and a Buffalo nickel...Tony found just the war nickel, some clad, and a gold plated pendant.
Some folks ask me how much trash I dig in a hunt...Well the last pic tells the story...It's all PB&

The Home team brings home Gold...14K Gold!

Met up with BanditIcey (Eva) and her Husband Brian from Rochester/Buffalo area of NY and we hit some of our local spots around Syracuse. First spot we hit was on a River and used to have a horse track and carnival back in the mid 1800s till the Depression era. Well, it may have been old, but it had been filled multiple times and no goodies for us. We moved to a park across the river and tried again...Still no joy, so we broke for lunch and then headed back to the city to hunt our "Home Away From Home" on the big hill...The first target I got read 13-12, 15-13, 13-18....It was 6 inches deep...I debated to dig or not to dig, but it was over 4", so I must dig...I am sure glad I did. I saw the sweet glint of Gold in the bottom of the whole and pulled out the nice 14K Wedding band....I was stoked for the rest of the afternoon. I think the car parts are a valve stem cap and a old starter pedal (floor starter you stepped on)...What they were doing on a steep hill is beyond my comprehension. The only coins found were clad for us all...I am sorry I could not get them Silver, but I think e all enjoyed a nice sunny day out in the parks....

Happy Hunting,

Saturday Hunt...Rosevelt went on a Buffalo Hunt!

Went out with Kevin to our "home away from home".  We failed to bless our coils with the "Holy Morgan", and payed the price.  We hunted for hours, only finding clad.  I did find 2 Buffalo nickles (1926 and 1937).  It was not until the sun started to set that we both found our silvers.  Kevin found a Mercury Dime, and I found a 1951 Rosevelt.  The coins from this park come out looking nice, as the ground is loose, and little fertilizer is used on the grass.  All in all, a damp, but enjoyable day.
