Saturday Hunt nets Silver and the Fuzz

We were hunting a Private school yard that has history back to the 1850s. My one friend found a Silver Washington quarter and then a 1909 Barber Quarter as digs 1 and 2 (lucky dog)...I managed 2 Silver rings, a 1930 Wheatie, and a little clad before some woman approaches us claiming to be one of the school's administrators and telling us we must leave. Well, not seeing her children in her mini-van, I copped an attitude with her, asking her for her name and ID (which she would not produce). Next thing I know the town fuzz is there and we had to pack it up.  We talked to a gentleman who proved he was an employee of the school, and we gave him the description of the woman. He claims he knows no one matching that description in administration. Seeing as it cost parents about $15k a year to send their kids to this school, I can see the woman's beef about us being there, but we did get permission from this gentleman earlier. I am going to email him later and see what he can do to get us permission or not from the head administrator...We shall see.  We moved on to another school about a 1/4 mile up the road. Nothing but clad and the button here...Oldest clad coin was a 1954 nickel and a 1965 Quarter (I hate them)...

Happy Hunting,

Got out Saturday and Sunday

Went to a wooded area that used to be an old Indian Canoe Portage with a friend...Was not finding much but a 1918 Wheat cent. A new hunter friend joined us, but he left rather quickly. We ended up leaving and going to a school yard I had found Silver in last year. I did not find Silver, but managed a 1892 Indian Head, the 1918 Wheat, and another 1955D wheat. I nicked the Injun..luckily it was not that one worth $1,200 bucks (1887 I think)...Olest clad coins were a 1964 Nickel,, and 61, 64 and 65 Copper Cents. Also found a cool cell phone looking pocket watch and a copper disc I have not yet IDed...

It's that time of the year again

Time for my girlfriend to shave her head in the name of curing Childhood Cancers...
Please go to the St. Baldricks site and make a donation and help her to reach her goal of $300 raised.
She is currently at $145 and the event is Sunday at 5pm at Kitty Hoynes in Armoury Square...
When you reach the site search for Dale Rumsey and donate, even if it is just $5. Every bit helps the kids.

Thank you so much,
