Met up with a couple of other Chicago dectorists Saturday morning at a park I had never hunted before. Park dated back to the late 1930s. I arrived shortly after sunrise and the other two guys had already started finding goodies. One guy on his 4th hole found a merc and a Peace Dollar in the same hole :woohoo:

Even though the grass was long and the ground was super dry from the heat wave we had in Chicago this week, the coins were still poppin. Hunted from sunrise until about noon and I found 4 mercs (1936, 1939, 1939D, 1942D), a 1961D Rosie and racked up 22 wheaties. Between the three of us, I think we found a total of 13 silvers.

Wow that's great! I suppose a 1939 park would not have been hit as hard as an 1800s park but that is pretty much like the old days of hunting. Nice finds and I still like finding mercs and rossys! That 39 is in super shape.
