Truly remarkable finds and I am glad to know you.

This summer you will have to teach me how to find some of those nice relics.

Or you can come here and I will show you where I find some newer coins.

The Romans needed to invent wallets or pockets in their tunics and togas, they sure lost a lot of great coins, well done on the finds, very cool coins.

ssheeesskk.  And to think us USA hunters "knock ourselves silly" to find a coin from the 1800s.   Doh !  🥵

      Hit an area where I had picked up a trime before. This time out I snagged an 1853 half dime, old 3 ringer, bronze wedding band that was fairly deep and 2 large cents that are in rough shape.
      Probably won't bother cleaning the large cents as they may just disintegrate.
      Used the Multi Kruzer at 14 khz in 2 tone mode. Had isat off, was manually ground balancing as the ground is pretty tame, gain at 95 and disc at 0. I'm finding it is better to let it do it's chatter and low iron hum once in a while rather than using discrim at all as it disc seems to make the audio bit choppy and hard to follow. Finding 2 tone very easy to pick out good targets even when there is a lot of trash and iron around, just work slow. That stock coil is working really well in the woods.

      It was a rather strange day today ......broad spectrum of finds and dates of coins.  BUT .........I got a tiny 9ct gold stud earring in black sand mix. A nice old penny, the other penny is just too far gone to see a date. Another coin for the scrap. Hubby ran off with the stainless steel hose clip thingys......guess some junk is useful eh?

      Bored silly with my states lock down on covid 19, I decided to go out to a place close to my house and run the MK with the 9 inch today and test out my home made detector stand. I was out for about 4 hours and found a bunch of clad and a fake diamond earring. Then I decided to dig every signal that I passed up before to test the 9 inch even more. 25+ pulltabs later I got a good nickle sound in the 60's. I dug a small hole pushed the pointer in and at about 3 inches was the large cent. I thought it was an oddly corroded 1/2 dollar. It was about 6 inches from the edge of a parking lot. It turns out it is an 1821 or 1827, hard to tell, I can just make out a 182- maybe 1 or 7. This was a great week for me. Might go out tomorrow if the wife allows. By the way the stand works great no dead dog detector anymore. Guess I'm not getting the battery pack now!!

      Out digging with the MK 9 inch coil and man did I get lucky. I decided to head to an old sight and hunt in the woods. I was hunting around an old spring about 300 yds from an 19th century house. Was finding my usual shotgun shell cases and wire, buckshot and a 32 cal. bullet. When I got a huge signal!! I new it would be iron so I dug it anyway. Found myself an awesome horseshoe. Thought to myself that's got to be good luck. I stumbled around for a little bit and found an old spoon and a weird piece of twisted copper wire, seem's hollow with solid wires inside (no clue). I got onto a bunch of aluminum, not even sure how it got to where I was hunting. I was ready to call it a day when I got a big aluminum hit but it was different, it was a much lower tone. Dug to about 8 inches and popped a big coin, It was a 1942 WL 1/2 dollar. Man did I get excited!!! I decided to stay a little longer. About three feet away I got the same big signal. Dug that and popped another 1942 WL 1/2 dollar. I spent the next three hours finding nothing. I guess the horseshoe thing has some merit.
      Shotgun shell cases,    two peter's Large P circa. 1915 to 1927
                                               one UMC co. circa. 1900 to 1910
                                               one USC co. circa 1926

      Hey guys, I haven't done a show & tell on this particular forum yet.  But a few friends I know  here aren't necessarily members or readers of some of the other forums.   So here is my latest trophy show & tell.  Got this @ last Saturday, on a hunt with Brian "Cal Cobra".  An 1881 P $10 gold.   This is my 16th gold coin of my career so far.   Brian also got an old coin from this trip, but .... we'll let him chime in with his 🙂
       
      This site has, so far, given up a Spanish reale, an 1829 bust dime, some 1800's foreign coins, an 1853 seated quarter, gold rush buckles, etc...   And oodles and oodles of period "whatzitz" that keep us on the edge of our seats.   All I can say about the location is:  "In California"  🙂
