Oswego County Road Trip

Hit two parks today... Both along the river. First park produced the 2 Mercs and most of the clad. As you can see, the fertilizer was not kind to the coins. The second park produced a LOT of trash, a few clad coins, then the show stopper... Have no idea what this bullet is... If anyone can help, email me at: diggerodirt@gmail.com The large copper disk, I thought was an old coin at first, but now I think it was just a knockout. Have no idea on the buckle either.

Saturday in a Pounded Park

My buddy and I have pounded this park we went to today to death last year. Not much to find here anymore...All day hunting, and here was my take...At least I got a 1800s IH.

Another First For Me

All my friends have found at least one, and since 2005, this is my first Large Cent...It is also my oldest coin to date... A 1817 13 Star Matron Head Cent. The nick in it was not from my diggers...She is a beauty for 200 years old!!!

3 Silver Sunday

Went to a wooded area near a golf course...Found the 1902 Barber dime there but little else. My Buddy Kevin found a SLQ, Washington Quarter and a Mercury Dime. We broke for dinner, then hit another park we have hunted a few times...The place always produces so far...I found 2 Mercury Dimes in one hole...1920 and 1940. I also found a few Wheats, and about $2.50 in clad (Not shown)...The large medalion was gold plated at one time, but it is mostly all gone...The smaller medalion is aluminum, or tin...NOT Silver.

Short park hunt today

Not much top brag about today...At least for me...My buddy Kevin found a 40% JFK Half. I found 1936, 45, and 56 wheats, and a 1923 Buffalo. Why do the newer wheats always look worse than the older ones???

Another Shallow "V" Nickel

Back to the same forest hills as I fond the Shield and other "V" Nickel, and I get another one...1903 and not in best shape...Only about an inch deep on the side of the trail. The guys who are cherry picking this place...I thank you for leaving the old nickels for me...I like 1800s and early 1900s coins...
