Got out last Tuesday evening for a quick evening hunt at local school. Wasn't expecting to find a whole lot while walking around a soccer field, but got two nice surprises. First surprise was a solid 11-43 on the Etrac about 3" deep. Thought it was going to be a clad dime/penny, but was surprised to pull out a King George III copper coin. I think it's a late 1700's date, but can't confirm. I think they call this a cartwheel? Scratched the lady on the back a bit...I'll admit I was careless when digging, since I suspected it a dime/penny.

The second surprise was a solid 11-27 on the Etrac, and about 3" deep as well. I was suspecting this tone to be a pulltab, or shotgun shell, but I was surprised when I slipped a silver disc outta the hole. Got my very first 3 Cent piece. Date of 1853. Not a bad first silver coin of the year. I can scratch that off my wishlist of coins to find now! B)

Happy Hunting Everyone!

-Nate
