    2006 Season Finds

    Since today's weather is very unpleasant, I decided to write up a post on how I am doing this year. It has been a very memorable and exciting year. The club and I have hit many interesting areas and met many people along the way. Zoyboy has also proven his research skills by locating some decent "hot spots."

    My season totals (so far):
    - 47 Indian Heads (Oldest being an 1859)
    - 9 Buffalo nickels
    - 6 V-nickels (Oldest being an 1891)
    - +150 Wheaties
    - 3 Colonial coppers
    - 1852 Large cent
    - 1837 Canadian Bank Token
    - 21 silver coins
    - 2 "Special" finds: 1853 3-cent silver piece, "Counterstamped" 2-Reale

    In the picture: 1942 Walker, 1786 Connecticut copper, 1774 British halfpenny, 1854 Seated dime, 1875-S Seated dime, 1903 Barber dime, and the 2-Reale with CM Berry Saloon "Counterstamped" on it.

    *Not pictured: 1853 3-cent silver piece and the badly pitted 1875 Seated dime.

    I just hope I can add to these totals before the season ends. Our season ends on December 31st!

    HH!

    Sounds like a good year to me. What is the best IH you have found? I haven't found that many but of the ones I found I managed a very nice 1875. Still trying to scrape up a V-Nickel. Last goal for the year.

    My best one would have to be an 1871 in VG shape. I found an 1876 this year, but it isn't too "purty."

    Sounds like a good year bud! How long have you been detecting anyways? This is my first full year doing it and I only wish that I had started out when I was younger, but it probably would have gotten in the way of all of my college partying, haha.

    Big B, I have been in it for over a year now. I am just getting my time in now because my hours will be limited next year. I will be graduating this May with an associate's degree in Nursing.
