Small OLD GOLD ring today, 5 buffs, Shield nickel, and other fun stuff.
Got out to a local park today - actually took off from work to go.
Started with a 1913 Barber dime, and 10 minutes later dug a low tone. This
is what popped out!
Any idea what the inital is? Looks like an R or a K
It weighs 1.5 grams, but for a mark it has what looks like an
angled anchor, then the letter "K" anyone know what it means?
Pretty much dug all of the low tones if it was solid enough and deep. Quite a surprise
to see a shield nickel! Can't realy read the date, and it looks close enough to
1870, so that'll work.
Here's the breakout of today's haul:
-Old Gold Child's signet ring
-1913 Barber Dime (got a barber dime yesterday too)
-gold plated ring
-1870? Shield Nickel
-1 entirely blank nickel - calling it a V so I can call it a trifecta! (got 5 V nickels yesterday)
-5 Buffalo nickels - dateless, 1936, 36, 36, 37 (got 4 buffalos yesterday)
(guess 1936 was a good year)
-4 Indian Head Cents - 1861?, 1864, 1908, dateless (got 2 IHCs yesterday)
-2 older one piece flat buttons
-3 wheat cents (got 10 yesterday)
Can't take any more days off this week, so will be heading back this weekend. HH all!

Nice variety of coins. The ground isn't very kind to the coins.

If twenty people do the typical response like "nice finds" what will that change about you posting here.
I have never found that many buffalo nickels in one hunt

Someone IDed the karat stamp on the What's It forum. Looks to date from 1887 to 1912. Not too bad!!

One heck of a day I'd say. Do you put up "no metal detecting" signs in that park when your not hunting it!?
Jul 31, 2012, 09:27 AM
Hey, thats a great idea!!! The parks around me are not old enough to find anything of real value unless its gold or silver jewelry. I keep hoping...

Nice finds... I would take a day like that anytime! I see the ground is not nice to nickels where you are too. Both of my shield nickels have non-readable dates.

The ground is horrible on nickels and also cents. Everything seems to turn a nice shade of green and it can be pretty thick. On a recent 2¢ piece there was thick corrosion over the date. Ugh what a spot for it haha.

When I'm grumpy, I go MD'ing.
I post all my finds regardless. I haven't found any items like, Barber Dime's or Buffalo nickels. Maybe I will some day. The hunt and anticipation, is just as exciting as the find.
