Last weekend I went back to the park that was starting to thin out on oldies. Decided to put my big coil on my etrac and try that. Got a 1916 Barber Dime and a 1945 Merc, a goetz phone token plus some wheaties.

Today I went to a different large Chicago park. 2 Indians - 1898 and 1901, a 1923 Merc, a 1920s or earlier good luck ring when the swastika was associated with good luck and not Nazi Germany. Also found 7 wheaties - all in the teens.

Thats some nice coinage and in decent condition!

What big coil are you using on your eTRAC?

I have the NEL 'BIG' but only used it once.
The parks here are way too trashy for such a big coil.

My goto coil is the NEL Tornado.

EDIT:
By the way, the twisted cross is also an American Indian symbol though i wouldn't of worn that ring during WWII. LOL

Great looking coins Patrick! I wish the field coins came out that nice. I miss hunting parks and need to get back to doing that again. I can imagine a kid wearing that good luck ring when he found out that the swasitka symbol was associated with Nazis and gave it a quick toss.
