    Spring break detecting bonanza

    Hey guys. I gotta post before thereís no time again and before too many pics pile up (if they havenít already). Did a bunch of hunting this week; it was so nice. We went on a scouting mission and discovered another good site. I pulled an awesome sports token from 1950. Itís huge. I was 100% sure it was a morgan when I saw it in the dirt lol. Also a pretty neat thimble.





    Then it was time for a bit of Berg hunting. Found a barber quarter (still donít understand how I gashed it) which was awesome and a good amount of wheats. For those that remember my ďblind diggingĒ that I was experimenting with last week, I tried this again, and it did yield results, but not to the magnitude that it did previously and I also cut the time I spent on this very short due to silver showing itself elsewhere. Also a neat button in there, not sure if itís anything worth looking into.



    Before I knew it was a barber quarter:






    I had a buddy who had a cheap detector and was interested in trying the whole deal out. So I took him to the closest park that had the most clad and he had a good time digging a few coins and seeing what it was all about. I wandered over to an area by some tennis courts out of boredom and was surprised to dig 3 wheats in the area. Also found a hole with about 20 or 30 pennies in it lol. The other 1917 wheat and other clad came from a local pounded park before I met up with him.



    Soon I was back at the Berg solo. Found the 4 silver and another IH, this one toasted. I talked to a guy who knew a lot about the area who lived nearby and he told me about how he used to hit the place a while ago and find half cents and large cents, as well as gold coins! Man, you guys thought WE were finding some good stuff hereÖ





    Toasted wheats!


    We made one more trip and this one was also really nice. Pulled some neat tokens. The octagonal one expired in 1918, so that was a neat old one to find. And the other Boy Scouts token Iíve never seen anywhere beforeÖitís pretty cool. Also got a silver ring (marked sterling with some sort of star after it, otherwise markless), and a nice 1914 barber dime. The one side has a nice glossy look to it, but the other side is kinda all caked on with something hard; weird. But I didnít find a barber anything last year, so it felt especially sweet!













    So thatís it, now back to classes... ...it was great to take a breather at home and to be able to hunt so much though! 8) Take care guys!

    Great job! Too bad there's no "S" mintmark on that 1901 quarter, but I would take a Barber Quarter any day! Here's hoping your next 1901 is an "S"!
