    Park Booty-Trashy Park gives it up again

    2 Consecutive Hunts
    Its been damn hot and dry here and Ive been busy at school again which does give me some time to hit some local parks (which I hate) people,EMI traffic, dog Sh*%, cops, you name it but through all that I finally mangaed some goodies!!! The Merc is 17s and the buffalo is no date and was an eyeball find in a wash I was working with the detector the war nickel is my 4th for the year they seem to turn up everywhere lately its a 42 P

    suburban park about 2 blocks in size half looks awsome with big trees and mowed grass the other half is obviously moved around with a water sprinkle bball courts and a pavillion
    The half that looks good produces nothing... the other half allthough loaded with trash is loaded with coins! The ground is bone dry and very rocky making sore hands with the Lesche digger-almost broke out the sampson shovel but I didnt think people would appreciate that so much. The Mercs are around 2-3 inches in depth and sound off like a shallow copper penny! Must be coupled with the ground conditions and the amount of corrosion on the coins. These are my finds from a 2 hour hunt yesterday. Also found a Barbados five centt piece, The half sounded AWESOME then I saw it and thought LARGE CENT then i saw ole ugly on the front How often do you run across a clad half anyways?

    Consider yourself lucky to hunt local parks and come out with silver. In some States this is banned.
    Good Haul on the finds.

    Re: Park Booty-Trashy Park gives it up again

    You make an excellent point, perhaps unintentional, for digging the junk too. Lots of junk masks lots of goodies. Weed both until your pockets are overflowing. Hope you find LOTS more!
