    Here's another oldie

    Got this one a while back. 1860 is the oldest U S copper coin so far. I'm posting it to show I even get some bad shape ones too.

    Thats an awesome find...I hope you don't mind for me asking but what model detector did you use and approx. how deep did you find your coin. I have seen a stranger detecting and I talked to him and he showed me his coins and his wasn't in as good shape as yours. Being new at this I was wondering if different soil conditions has anything to do with the coins condition. The guy that I met [and myself ] detects in central virginia...

    NICE COIN ! THE OLDEST INDIAN HEAD I'VE GOTTON IS A 188O. BUT THE OLDEST COPPER IS A 1733 BRITISH HALF CENT, 1787 FUGIO(POINTED RAYS), 1795 LIBERTY CAP, AND 1847 LARGE CENT. SORRY TO RUB IT IN . MAYBE YOU SHOULD HEAD OUT TO CONNECTICUT WHERE THERE ARE LOTS OF COLONIALS? I'VE KNOWN PEOPLE WHO HAVE FOUND PINE TREE SHILLINGS IN MASSACHUSETTS AND SOME GW BUTTONS( GEORGE WASHINTON). LATER HOPE THE MXT WORKS OUT FOR YA.

    Free, how do you locate those "Demo" sites? Do you have a city or state website that shows where work is taking place, or do you just drive around? Do you stick to municipal projects or do you include private contracting jobs? I'm interested in how you learn about these sites.

    Thanks

    Good plan Free, but it just doesn't seem to work quite as well when you are a 53 year old disabeled grey haired fat guy. Hmm! Maybe it would help to dye my hair blonde. Spotz

    I managed the Code Enforcement program for ten years in Tulsa OK. We demolished about 110 buildings a year and left the lot slick to the dirt. Much of the time the property owners themselves didn't live in Tulsa or the property was dilapidated and had gone to a tax sale, etc. It wouldn't be unsual for there to be no none around to ask or deny permission. Contact your local city government and find out where urban renewal projects are being planned or ongoing. Just stay out of the way of the contractors until the demo work is done.
    Don't make me loose the hounds! If you dig, Cover up your holes.
