    Got Schooled by MR Senior & PTD. MR Senior found a 1916 D Dime

    Hi guys, I met MR Senior and his buddy PTD at a park in my neck of the woods today. This is a park I've dug quite a few times and never had results like these guys. I feel like such a rookie . I can't believe what these guys can pull out of turf that has been detected by so many people. You guys are great . Top finds of the day were a 1916d for
    MR Senior and a Engraved Seated Dime for PTD.
    I could learn alot from these guys. MR Senior gave me a few tips for my etrac and I was digging 8"+ targets that I was missing before. Thanks MR Senior! I ended up finding some wheaties, clad and my only good find 1934 Worlds Fair junk ring. I found the ring at 8"+ as the guys were leaving. I wish I could have showed them that to save some face .
    You guys have to watch the video to see the Great Finds these guys made. Hope you enjoy.
    Congratulations on your Great Finds Guys

    US Navy button! 1850-1865 period, wow! I got one of those a couple years back down near Litefire territory, not nearly as good looking as that one. Love those custom coins! You know how to hit the wierd ones for sure, no to mention the 16D merc!

    Hey JD 50, might be a junk ring but I had a big old grin on my face when I dug my first one from the COP Expo for sure! Great find!

    And you got to see the experts in action, congrats guys!

    The engraved seated dime is what they call a Love Token. Most times they will have a hole punched in them to be worn around the neck.

    My son found a 1886 seated dime when he was 16 (he's 41 now) and it has been one of his most prized finds. By the way they are collected by many people so don't scrap them out as damaged. Rick

    Really nice finds and that hand holding the button really shows the wear and tear of all that digging. Scars of the love for the hobby. Rick
