My friend Keven was playing this old Chuck Barry song on the radio and it stuck in my head all dang day...We headed out of town and into the sticks, but found all the woods out there POSTED...For the love of Pete folks...I know that some of them woods are public property! We ended up back just outside the city in a park we have hit a number of times before...We were joking that if we stopped finding silver that all we needed to do was pack everything back in the car, drive down the road a bit and come back in 10 minutes and we would find more. Seems like at least 2 pop out every time we have been there. I found 4 silvers today. A 1948 Washington Quarter, 1926 and 1941 Mercury Dimes, a 1949 Silver Canadian Dime, and a no date Buffalo nickel. Also found $1.91 in clad.

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: firstname.lastname@example.org 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.

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. HH,

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...

Went back to the same woods as the other day...Got there about 1PM, and hunted till dark...Nothing all day long but cartridge cases, shotgun shells, and can lids... Then just before dark, I headed down by the creek, and hit back to back nickel signals less than 2 inches each...Dug (scraped the surface) for the first one and pulled a 1869 Shield Nickel in decent shape. Next came the 1889 V Nickel, also in great shape. The ring was found on top of the tallest hill in the area...It is Sterling, but most of the stones are missing and are glass. The bottle I just thought was neat. This area has history back to the late 1600s. It is brutal hunting, and a major workout, but persistence pays off... HH,
