I know I moan now and then about not having access to many of the S or D mint coins here in Pennsylvania, but this spring I have been on a number of new permissions that have really added quite a bit to the type set I have been building of my dug coins. It does make me appreciate the wide range of mint years and coins in my area. Yes, coppers come out pretty ragged some times, but since they aren't getting sold, its no matter. These weren't all gotten this spring, but ill put an x next to those.
x New Jersey Copper
Spanish period counterfeit copper
x Half cent Classic head 1809-29
Large cent Liberty Caps, including a 1795 lettered edge
Large cent Draped busts
Large cent Classic heads
Large cent Matron heads
x Large cent Braided hair
a whole tribe of Indian cents
x Two Cent
Shield Nickel - no rays
Liberty head nickels
herd of buffalos
Liberty seated half dime
Liberty seated dime
Standing Liberty Quarters
Walking Liberty Halves
1786 Half Reale x2
x 1801 Reale
Canadian large cents
Canadian Bank Tokens
This is not a plug for the company or any sort of recommendation to buy stuff, but on libertycoinservice.com, they have a free PDF archive of type set documents that are really nice to summarize things if anyone is interested in type coins.
happy hunting, stay hydrated out there!
I refer to the majority. Most of mine were quite ,distinct from ground or loud junk signal. Does that mean if I was going slow I would be better to sped up a bit. I know beginner go too fast but speeding up a bit would be more productive for those that have gain experience, I know what works for me or am I wrong. Let hear your view.

Well our club held it first club outing last week since the pandemic began last year. The club has had Zoom meetings every month for those who wanted to keep in touch, but everyone was itching to get together and enjoy some relic hunting. The club trip leader announced that this outing would be the thirty-fifth time the club has been to this site, the last time was 2018 and many coins (Seated Quarter, Indian Heads, Shield Nickels) tokens and relics were found. This club outing V-Nickels, Shield Nickels, Seated Dime, Indian Heads, Wheat Cents, tokens and relics were found. You would think after thirty-five times to this site it would be some what hunted out, but the site keeps producing or is our metal detectors technology getting better? Mostly Equinox's, Garrett's, XP Deus's , Whites were being used. My wife was using a XP Deus and I was using a Nokta Kruzer with a five inch coil. Looking forward to the next club outing the first part of June and other outings for the rest of the year.

Beautiful day to be relic hunting
Here are some of the tokens and relics I and my wife found
I need help identifying this rock please. I found this around Louisiana a few weeks back. To me it looks like raw Platinum or an ore maybe. I’m not really good at this yet haha. It’s not magnetic at all, it’s weight is 3.7 grams, and it’s streak is too hard to get, as it only scratches the plate. So possibly even a meteorite? Idk heh. Thanks you!!
Please help me identify this if possible😸.
I found this while Hounding around Louisiana. At first I thought it might be a meteorite but then I started thinking it’s melted metal haha. I’m not sure though. It is slightly magnetic and it’s streak is too hard on some sides and just scratches the plate. BUT other sides leave a brownish gold and gray streak. It’s odd. I might need to clean it and do the streak test again. It’s weight is 19.0grams. Thank you so much!
