    Cool Went back to old wharf site I got LG cents from

    last month in saltwater on cape cod
    waters weren't ideal but made the best of it
    had a hard time finding the old pilings area with visibility not being the greatest -
    2nd target was a large hit - I clicked from all metal to ID mode to see if it was large iron or something worth digging
    ID went low -mid then high with each sweep over it - sometimes that means more than one object - so I started scooping
    bout a foot down I hit an old brick - old bricks from up here - early ones - have metal in them and go off like silver dimes
    I removed it - signal was bigger than that - scooped down another 6 inches and got a conglomerate - ended up being an old pocket knife
    rechecked hole and got another signal was surprised to see large silver disc in my scoop - walking liberty half
    pays to dig it all -
    surprise for the day (well there were 2) - got a faint signal in the rocks that were under where the wharf would have been
    this is where I got 2 Large cents last month - saw a copper disc and I got excited - thought it might be a half cent but then thought 2 cent piece
    bingo - 2 center - my first from saltwater
    not to long after I got another nice signal not to far from what was left from the wharf pilings and came up with another old coin - it was black and I swiped with my thumb
    and saw one cent and then noticed its thickness - oh yea - a fatty ...1863 and it came out in beautiful shape - it was XF when lost
    I did get an old gold band - a older silver ring - brass old bracelet
    keepers I ended up with
    1942 walk lib half
    1941 sil. quarter
    1943 sil.quarter
    1939 merc
    1936 merc
    1946 sil.Roos.
    1945-P sil. nickel
    Buffalo nickel
    2 cent piece
    1863 IH penny
    got an old brass wedding band (probably form a fisherman working on the wharf)
    more bronze nails/spikes ...more lead fishing net weights ...some brass sail grommets and a large rosette
    amongst other old stuff
    looking forward to going back - there's a lot of large iron out there - can be tough to work
    but I know there are more goodies under and next to some of the junk
    hoping to get some period silver eventually
    I know 2c is rough but still cool for me to find in the water -have gotten good ones on land
    but finding this one and another fatty (3rd one from there) gives hope for what other oldies may be out there

    it wasn't easy - that is why stuff is still out there at this spot - Im on my toes at low tide and don't have a lot of time
    to stay on the spot - theres is a lot of large old trash - a lot of those old bricks that read off - many coins are in pockets with
    old bronze nails and old lead too - current made it hard to stay on targets - its not an easy spot to hit

    Nice work Casper. That's a lot of digging but very rewarding. I hope the next time you go it a super low tide.

    I have given lessons and pass on knowledge whenever asked but my methods of hunting aren't for all - I hunt in all metal 99% of the time and try to dig it all
    not for everyone - I'll PM you some articles ive written though -some might help - others might inspire

    not exact one - that I can prove - but this wharf was within a mile or 2 of mine
    some of these go back to the mid 1800s - and with some of the coin finds Ive made out there
    large cents - 2c piece and early IHs
    I believe mine was one of the early ones
    I believe this pic is from the 1800s

    Nice finds! Any idea what the lead disk is above the nails and next to the net weights? I too found one very similar to yours this past weekend in the back of a harbor in buzzards bay. Let me know when you're around again, I'll be back on the bay this Sunday-Tuesday.
