Last Two Hunts

Recommended Posts

This is the good stuff I was able to pull out of the ground yesterday and today. I have really been focusing on digging "gold" type targets which is why I have all the nickels. I managed one ring but I think it's junk(no hallmark) 4 silver dimes, two harmonica reeds, marbles, some tokens, lipstick case(I think) and the 611 brass tag. What isn't here is the 67 pop tops and beaver tails that I dug in my quest for gold. I'm trying to keep track of all my trash gold sounding targets this year so I can develop some sort of ratio of how many pop tops I dig to gold. I also dug some mystery coins, bigger than a penny, smaller than a quarter and thin. No idea what they are.  

This was really made possible due to the rain we finally got on Monday and Tuesday. Instead of dirt cement I had wet dirt which allowed me to dig quickly.

Cool finds Skate. I like the fact you’re hitting those nickels. Gold is sure to follow. Good luck!

Nice assortment you got going there. Do you have an acid test kit? you can check the ring easily. lots of nice rings have no hallmark yours looks a little on the thin side but second pic makes wonder if it's gold. I like the old key fob.

I don't have an acid test kit. It's pretty thin. When I dug it the breath just kind of ran out of me, I was on one knee digging and I had to take a seat. I was all giddy and then after looking at it further I just couldn't see it being real. I figured some high school romeo got it out of a bubble gum machine and tried to pass it off to this girlfriend as the real deal and she chucked it.

Nice hunts Skate.

You know, I don't think I have ever dug an intact harmonica reed, only pieces.

Thanks for sharing.

I do the same thing when it comes to nickels.  Over the years, the majority of all gold rings I've found  ID at nickel or just below.
