Went back to my 1930s Chicago park. I usually hunt these trashy parks with my discrimination pretty tight. I usually block out evertything below 30 on the conductivity axis. With all the silver and wheaties I have been finding at this spot I figured that there must be some older nickels or other low tone goodies.

I opened up my detector and went really slow focusing on the deeper signals since the place is littered with shallow to medium depth pull tabs and foil. Was able to pop 7 older nickels - 3 Vs (1895, 1910, 1912), 2 Buffs (1919D and dateless), a 1943S war nickel, and a 1948 Jefferson. Also got a 1943 Merc. Was really surprised to find out that a blackened crusted silver dime turned out to be a seated 1876CC. Got my first gold of the year with a 18K religious medallion. Also found 15 wheaties plus an interesting button or stud with a lincoln penny front.

Fantastic day of hunting! What a great looking gold medallion. The dime looks like it was in great shape when it was lost. I think I would camp out at that park for a while ;)

Id'd be happy to get finds like that for sure! I need to start digging signals in the nickel range. Lord know how much gold I have passed up!
