Went out for a quick hunt this morning and put the small coil on the E-trac. Headed to a trashy spot in a field near where I pulled the Silver dollar two days ago. Kept the pace VERY slow and was rewarded a couple times today. First up was a nice 12-45 signal that produced a worn 1928-S mercury dime. Always happy to start the day off with a silver coin. I guess my horseshoe must still have some magic left in it. A short while after the merc I pulled an unusual piece...It has a flower on one side, and looks like a lead ball on the other. If you recognize it, I'd be happy to hear what you think. I was guessing maybe a bottle stopper of some kind. Rumor has it there was a tavern in this area at one point. Could be the reason for all the trash. And last, but not least I got a scratchy squeal at the end of the hunt that produced a nice 1944-S 50 Centavos Phillipines coin. 75% silver! All in all, not a bad day for 2.5 hours in the trash. Sometimes it pays off to put the small coil on and sift through the junk everyone else passes up.

Check out the video of today's hunt:



Happy Hunting everyone!

Looks like someone tossed their coin collection out at that spot! First time I've heard of a 50 centavo from the Philippenes coming out of the ground. SWEET!

Nate..thanks for sharing that video. It was so clear, and was interesting to see what you found. It will be a few months before we get to go hunting here in NE. Keep those finds coming.
Life is a coin, you can spend it anyway you wish, but you can only spend it once.

Will do. The season is about a month deep now for me. I've got until March before they start planting the fields again. There will be more!
