Another 1914-D Wheatie!!! 2 Years, 3 Months ago Karma: 22  
Was able to get out for a few hours on Saturday morning. I decided to go back to the spot where I found the nice condition 1879 Indian, the bar token, and another one of my Indians from last weekend. The area is super, super trashy but the older coins were not extremely deep. I thought the place would be good spot to try my Sunray X-5 small coil. I have not used it that much.

The grass was much longer than last weekend with all the rain we got but there were enough spots where it was manageable to hunt. Early in the hunt I got a bouncy signal but it was repeatable enough to dig and was about 4 inches deep. First target out of hole was a nail, followed by a piece of led and then a pull tab. 4th target was a coin and I saw it was a wheatie from the back. Flipped it over and I saw the 1914 date and a mint mark and had to do a double take to make sure I was seeing a "D" instead of an "S".

Kept hunting for another two hours and found 3 indians (1891, 1894 and 1898) and about 6 more wheaties but no silver. The X-5 performed great. Deepest wheatie I got with it was two in the same hole at 7 inches.

I found a 1914-D earlier this year at this same park but it was very corroded. This one is much cleaner and the only cleaning to it was I washed it off with soap and water. There is still some dirt deposits on it but I have not tried to carefully clean it any more.

Pictures below. My picture of the back did not come out well. The condition is as good as the front.

Patrick, two 1914-D's in the same park......I'd be buying a lottery ticket with your luck.
Congratulations Patrick!
