    Was reading through these old posts and saw this one... This also goes to show, it is possible to find some old coins, but I doubt any construction company will give you permission when they're excavating and tearing down some of these old buildings. I wish I was into MDing when the Lightrail was being built.
    Happy Hunting!

ID:	1566717Yes I hunt farm fields. But finding old targets like a large cent is more than just where you hunt. It’s also about taking the time to research the field. Find documents that show early occupation on that field. Then take the time to contact and get permission from the owner of that field and of course take the time to hunt that field. Fallow the square nails. Don’t notch them out. They’re telling you a story. Take the time to listen. I have four large cents in Minnesota. The 1849 with the 52 caliber bullet hole came from a field near the Iowa border and was the results of a year of research and 200 plus hours of swinging a coil.

    I've found several.
    1) 1831 found at street construction project in Northfield.
    2) 1831(?) found in street construction project in Kellogg.
    3) Flowing hair variety 1796-1807 Date unreadable. found in High Forrest.
    4) 1846 found in Spring Valley park during installation of playground equipment.
    5) 1853 found in "Old" Concord park.
    They are out there, but you need to be in an older area. It helps to have a dug up site as well.
