    A weekend of firsts...

    First off. Happy Easter everyone!!

    Well, Friday night I was not thinking about MDing. Pounding headache, multiple toilet trips, and I was just hoping for a bad nights sleep . I had already cancelled going MDing with cwdigger. Saturday morning came around and things were looking up . My buddy, The Basque, called me advising that he was cooking ribs that late afternoon and invited me over. I figured that if I was starting to feel better then I should make use of the early afternoon. Went to some property north of Swansboro, NC that I had been to before and started swinging the coil. First swing in the front yard was met with a strong tone. Out popped the heavily corroded large one cent piece!! Up until this point, my oldest coin was a 1900 Indian Head penny. I knew that I had just blown that personal best out of the water . I started working the horse paddock that had once been farm fields and got a solid 89 on my G2. Out popped my first Walking Liberty Half Dollar!!! 1945 S. Okay, so now I am sitting there stunned...Wow! Two firsts in one day. After about three hours I started back to the truck. I got the other end of the front yard and I just about blew my ears out with the scream in the head phones. Dug around in the grass and out popped the Gaskin Cycle Good Luck Token...Hmmmm, interesting . Anyway, I headed to The Basques, looked up the Hydrogen Peroxide bath and got the one cent piece in its bath for the night. This morning The Basque and I hit the Emerald Isle Beach. An hour in, a solid 61 on my G2, and 12 inches down out pops my first gold ring!! . This afternoon, we headed to a spot in Pender County, NC. I found what I believe is a snuff box lid. Its about 1 1/2 inches across and has a hinge on it. Post Colonial? Let me know.

    So anyway, three firsts for me this weekend. First large one cent, first Walking Liberty and first gold ring. What a great weekend!!

    No idea on the date of the one cent. Maybe someone can narrow the date range with the heads hair style although it does appear to look like an 1839. Whatever it is, it is my oldest coin to date.

    I can not help you on the large cent, I have 2 and they have no readable dates.
    I just love those Walkers, they always make your day.
