    Beebs CRH Log

    Hello all - Getting back into hunting after a little break. I decided to start a log to keep track and really wish I would have done it sooner. A little background - I've been hunting off and on for a close to 4 years now. The breaks usually would occur when I lose my dumping bank. I am on to my 4th option. First bank cut me off after dumping like 30k in a month. One would let me bag up as much as I wanted then it went to 2k a month but the lady left and the new person wasn't digging what I was throwing. The 3rd was a casino that cut me off after 30k in 2 weeks. So on to the 4th that says they are okay with as much as I want to bring in but I can tell the lady wasn't happy after I filled the machine twice this week. See how far I can get away with it this time.

    It’s been a while so I forgot about how I never find anything in boxes of dimes. I’m going back to customer rolled ones when I pick up my halves from now on.

    Stopped at the bank in the market during lunch.
    $100 Customer rolled dimes - Skunk
    Also four of the dimes were 5 pence so lost out on this one. I guess I should roll up my foreign coin and dump at a bank way out of my area. I have a box filled of random stuff I've been meaning to go through for some time now.

    Did I just really find gold in a reject tray?

    So I went and dumped the $500 today and there were some coins in the reject tray. I just pocket whatever's in there and look at it later. Usually foreign change and sometimes I get the lucky silver but gold?
    Here's what I found

    Yes, that's a silver dime 1964 and the weird one on the bottom stood out to me.

    From what I can find its a 1700 to 1709 8 escudes lima from the 1715 fleet
    Markings are:
    L 8 H
    P V A
    7 0 5? Can't tell the last number.
    The outside rim has been completely melted off and all the images are pretty much melted and distorted. The other side has the E marking showing it is gold and when I put it to a high power magnet it didn't stick at all. Is it a legit find? Taking to coin shop tomorrow to see what my guy says.

    Metal Detecting
    Honorable Mentions (1)
    It's hard to tell from the pictures but that old Spanish looking cob may very well be a modern knock off for the tourist trade.

    Check the edges to see if there's a protruding edge which would be the result of the mold marks.

    I've dug a couple detecting and they had me going at first.

    Yeah, not sure what to think. It's really light, only 3.9 grams. I think it's real gold though. Heading to the coin shop shortly and to grab some halves at a bank that I've had luck with in the past. HH

    They think it's a replica made of copper. I noticed a couple markings that could be the mold marks. They said to take it to this place but it's like 45 minutes away. I go up there every once and a while and will stop in next time I roll through. Until then, back to hunting.

    $500 box loomis halves - skunk

    So the bank where I got brinks rolls now gave me a box of loomis. Hmmmm. These last 2 weeks I had found a bunch of coins with different marks. It's like I'm just getting other peoples dumps. I need to find more places for pick ups and try for some more banks for dumpings and up the amount.

    $500 box brinks halves - 1 -65
    Also found a 1987 that just popped out. I don't look for the NIFC coins anymore but I do almost have a full roll of the 1987 now. There were quite a few 2002 and up coins but they are all catch and release to me now.
