    An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

    I didn't hunt Woodstock, but I did hunt Goose Lake last year. It's now a 1,000-lot campground.
    Goose Lake Music Festival, Leoni township, Mich, Aug. 7-9, 1970.
    Capacity: 60,000.
    Attendance: 200,000
    Three days of drugs, rock-n-roll and deplorable debauchery. Oh, and a revolutionary 'rotating' stage.

    I didn't find much of anything in a 30-minute hunt. Would like to try again though.

    I remember the W&E Treasure article I read showed only clad was found, no silver. Being born in the 50s I remember in 1965 when all the silver coins were pretty much out of circulation. It was like they disappeared.

    Funny comment about Woodstock... two years ago, I worked with a guy my age that said he and his brother had bought a VW Microbus in 1969 and were going to Woodstock with their girlfriends. Turns out his girlfriend got sick and she told him he couldn't go without her. His brother and girlfriend did go. I asked him, "What did his brother say about Woodstock"? He said his brother didn't remember a darn thing!!!

    good to read of your hunt there. I being a 'card carrying member' ( ticket holder) have always wondered what would be found, as you mentioned, lots of wine caps, and I figured many crushed beer cans, and of course numerous brass 'chamber pipes' (think how moldy that hash would be by now !!(JOKE)) . Personally I would avoid the field itself, but would hit the woods and camping areas. A lot of commerce went on away from the burger joints on the hill. Also in and around the pond might be a good place to hit for silver jewelry --- perhaps some day I'll 'get ack to the garden' and have a hunt there myself--

    I thought about hunting the woods but never got there because I wasn't sure if it was owned by the same landowner at the time. I know they had paths in the woods that were named. What was in there? Were there makeshift stores, food sales, head shops? Did anyone camp in there?

    yup, them 'pot stands' were in the woods. With 400k kids stumblin' around, I would think any and all things could turn up. Also, I would not doubt that the new 'entrepreneurs' own it all around there. Thing to do is stop on by and see if it's posted---- only two hours from where I am, --'bucket list'--(when I need one)

    I'd sure give it a try if had the opportunity. Shouldn't take long to discover whether it's a good hunt or not.

    They where Hippies. There wasn't 2 nickles between any of 'em.

    From what I have heard people started hoarding silver well before the 1964 cutoff, change to clad was not a surprise move and everyone knew years in advance that a dime was about to be worth more than a dime.
    So I would expect a vast majority of dropped coins to be clad.

    Sounds like a fun idea to detect there but I think it would be hugely frustrating, you would have your hopes set up for a Hendrix ring or at least a cool hash pipe but likely find can slaw and bottlecaps all day long. Whatever you did find would lose its historic value pretty quick, as only you would know for sure the item came from there.

    Found a large Woodstock peace token and this thread came to mind - Unfortunately did not find it in NY but at a tot lot in MI, looks to be from a charity run and is huge.

    Also found a nice .925 ring, large stainless some junk and a bunch of clad.

    Here is a pic from that time.
    Down there on the left I can see a hippy chick that is missing one silver earring.
    Way up near the top some guy just lit a joint with a nice silver lighter he stole from his old man...and he just dropped it there and walked away.
    Two or three others were flying high, dancing wildly and silver necklaces just broke and dropped off of their necks in other places.
    I would hit it.
