    City Park Finds or Penny Park

    After some much needed rain I made it out for some detecting. I have hunted this park before which never fails to produce a load of pennies, so I renamed the park 'Penny Park'. I was surprised when my first good signal turned out to be 1941 War Nickle. After that I found my normal stash of pennies which I contribute to the local high school students tossing their pennies around during lunch break. Another surprise followed with another nickle signal, was I amazed to discover it was a dated 1968 with a mint mark of 'S' stamped. At the end of the hunt I managed to find $0.42 in pennies, $0.25 in nickles and $0.50 in dimes.

    Did not find any silver or gold rings like some folks I know...not mentioning any names (juju) but on this side of the mountain we don't have a large population of rich folks losing rings and such. But I did have fun and had a small following of local kids asking a ton of questions.

    I've had worse days

    Don't want to burst your bubble, but war nickels were made from 42-45 with the mint mark above the monticello on the reverse. Still a cool older nickel though

    49er, at least you got out! That's what really counts!
