I still like wheats; got a '57 this morn. If you're finding wheats, you're in the Ag zone, too! Got a '46 (first year?) Rosie and a War Nickel from the same area two days ago... So beat that yard like a rented mule! And get permissions from your neighbors with old houses, too! Good Luck!

Thanks! I found a dateless silver liberty quarter last year in the yard. My grandfather did a lot of moving dirt so somethings may be lost in most of the yard. I found the two coins in a untouched part of the yard. I will keep trying in all parts of the yard. I will try to get permissions because my neighborhood ranges from 1938 to 1958. Good luck to you as well!

I am going to call every rental place near you and tell them not to rent any mules to you.

That is a great place to be hunting with the age and the people who have been around it working.

A lot of times I will go to the older churches and football fields nearby to hunt.

Good luck!

Yoicks!! But English being what it is— maybe I meant that the rented mule was going to beat the yard! Yeah,  that's the ticket!

Seriously though, your suggestion of old churches is a great one! (Barber quarter and 1894 Krone in the front yard of a retired church!)

The works was done in the mid 1980s. My grandfather bought the property as rental units and now I own them all. I will check, and I have before, but there is not much left. One side of the house is where he buried all of the plaster walls when he renovated.

Great find.  I've found around a dozen wheaties in the short time I've been detecting and all but two or three looked much worse than this one.  I wouldn't clean it any further, it looks good the way it is.

Congrats on your first Wheatie! No doubt it is the first of many. The yards of old homes can be very productive since they don't get hunted like public places do. I remember finding some nice things in my yard when I first started detecting.

      I'm exaggerating a bit of course but this little patch has yielded a few silver coins each time i search there.. this morning's haul..

      Had some luck during the week finding my 3rd gold coin in 9 years of detecting , so i am feeling the buzz again . This one is an 1853 Half Sovereign , 22ct , 19mm diameter . Came from a well hunted spot where virtually every target over 20 on the Nox has been cleaned up by the high tone hunters .  This was 15 in all directions at around the 5 inch mark . Found a nice brooch and pendant as well . The hunt area is a well known gold mining town dating back to the 1870's .

      Nicest wheat penny I've found so far.
      Found it in my cousin's yard, which used to be my uncle's yard, and has been a residence going back to at least 1874.  Farm country in southeast Minnesota.
      The soil at this place is definitely more friendly to copper than other places I've found wheats that are so green you have to nearly destroy them just to read the year.  I found a 1919 Wheatie here a few weeks ago.  That one cleaned up easily too, but wasn't quite as pretty as this one.  
      Minimal cleanup, and I present it for your viewing pleasure.  Just don't touch it.

      I have been digging a 1930,s out house and before i left for the day i scanned my sniper coil thru the dirt i had trown out , finding sevral shot shells and then what i thought was a token , and this is just on top of the pile well i got it home and cleaned off the dirt , It is an 1899 V nickle , and i suppose when the out house user pulled down his pants this coin fell out , Now I am asking myself , How many other coins have fallen out ? so my plan is to take a board and put a few scoops on the board , spread it out , have a magnet handy and scan the whole pile going back in  I bet it has more coins
