    Silver at the Defunct Park

    Well, dudes, the day all started off with a disagreement in the "Scooby Doo" about Blitz taking corners too quickly with my metal detector in the back. This escalated into an unfriendly dispute about who is the better detectorist. Eventually, I proclaimed myself as the better detectorist and we set our eyes on our destination: Defunct Park Zoyp.

    I decided to detect in an area that I have never done thorougly before in hopes that I could score a decent find. About 20 minutes into the hunt, I got a deafening "dime" signal pinpointing at 0". So, being the smart ass I am, I kicked a small branch out of the way in the area that I was going to dig. Well, after doing so, I was startled to see a "One Dime" staring at me; it turned out to be a 1904 Barber dime. Yes, dudes, a Barber dime right on top of the ground, literally.

    Hey, Blitz, who is "zee" man now?

    It does happen through erosion, animals digging or anything else you could think of. I found a barber half sticking 1/3 out of the ground a few days ago. It was on the side of a hill that was eroding away.

    Great dig, but if you ever find out that it is raining Barbers in your neck of the woods instead of raindrops, give me a call. I've got lots of buckets laying around the house.
