    Group Hunt at Jackson Park Unbelievable finds as a group+ Links to post

    11 of us went to Jackson Park area
    A few of the guys were from another forum.
    All I can say is that it was one of the BEST GROUP HUNTs and that's an understatement.
    In all there was 30+ silver coins found...
    Many Buffalo nickels.
    Many Cookie coins that are pennies.

    My meager finds were:
    1935 Washington Quarter
    1914 D Barber Dime
    1898 I H Penny
    No Date Buffalo
    Wheats were 1910 1927 1925 1934 1935 1946 1956d

    I had a blast............................................. ...

    Everyone had a blast and NOBODY went home without some fantastic coinage...

    Look for everyone else's post.. and don't drool to much........

    The area was Metal detectorist's dream hunting area.......

    Great finds Bob! Glad you all had a good time. I'm always amazed at how much stuff is still coming out of there, especially coins like silver quarters. Were you using your Minelab??

    Bob must have got that beauty of a dime after we left! Please don't tell us it was 1" deep in an area that was heavily searched!!

    Great finds Bob!! I'm also amazed that we all got something to take home... it was how a group hunt should be.

    Very nice finds! That coinage is sweet! Barber dime looks brand new!

    Wow. That barber dime is SHARP! Thanks for calling Jon and I over yesterday morning. When you drove by honking we were wondering where you were going. Great seeing you again!

    Nice group photo. You guys had the perfect storm. Flipped sand, nice weather, and no 10,000 other swinging *@#@* out there in the mix!
    Remember, it's good practice to plunder and pillage before you burn the village.

    DP Bob,
    Beautiful Barber!!!! Still looking for my first.
    I thought the group hunt was going to be at Washington Park not Jackson.
    I didn't go cause I haven't had much success at Washington but I've never been to Jackson...guess I am planning my next hunt now.
    Congratulations and great pics. It's nice to put the names on the faces.

    Todd
