    My first day of hunting was great!!!

    I just had my very first day of metal detecting. My co-worker told me about the fun he had with his son metal detecting. So I purchased a White's MTX. i started of on a soccer field where I was trying to understand the controls when I got my first hit. It was a 1967 Quarter. OK, I'am hooked!!! As the day went on I found coin after coin. I found 7 quarters,6 dimes,and 12 pennies. I was getting ready to stop because my back was starting to hurt when I had a strong tone at 6"'s. I started digging and digging when I finally found a very small coin. I wiped the coin off and it said HALF DIME 1850. I couldn't beleive this. I just had to share my find. Thanks!! Troy

Out pops a coin a little bigger than a quarter. I was really new at it so I wipe it off. I see a date 1825 Later found it was a Large Cent. Never even knew there was such a coin. I was hooked unfortunitly I set the bar so High it to so long to beat the age. The finally I found a 1731 George So know I dont know if I will ever beat that age. Congrates and good luck in the future. This is really the best sport there is. I like it so much I wrote a book about it and got it published.
    Cool! What's your book called.

    1850 Half-Dime?!? Amazing! And your first time out, on top of that! Welcome to the family! Happy Hunting!
    We all know there's no such thing as a "hunted out" location. Let's stop using that phrase to describe a park out of which you just dug a pile of coins! Obviously that particular place wasn't "hunted out", right?

    WOW!!! Great find!! Keep after that soccer field. Just fill your holes in neat, so nobody throws a fit. And as you gain experience, no telling what you might find there.
    Welcome to the fun and the forum. WTG!! HH

    Welcome and congrats. That is a fantastic first time find, and not an easy one due to its size. Just don't expect that every time. What you experienced was the detector Gods getting you addicted. They have funny ways about themselves. They give you something and then they let you go a while without anything, then they surprise you with a great day or two. You will get used to it. Congrats...Lance
