    Sunday Coin Beach

    Sunday bkinpa, DKinPA & I headed to Coin beach for a little bit.
    was a long trip from here. about 200 mile one way.
    the beach was nice to look at, weather was ok but waves kept me
    busy trying not to get wet feet. I failed, the waves won

    besides the 3 of us I met 2 brand spanking newbies, she said he bought a Garrett 250
    for her the day before, but won't take it out of his hands.
    she did have a Cool Lock plate from a jewelry Box or something they found.
    I told them to check us out .
    saw another hunter with a
    Excalibur fighting the waves, and on our way out a Young lady was on her way in.
    I assured her I left plenty there as We exchanged a quick Pleasantry.
    But no body seemed to be from here.

    my Finds for the day
    included 21 Cents

    I'd be real happy to find that 1911 Barber at one of the beaches around here! Way to go!
    I got all excited when I dug one wheatie at the beach after hunting nearly two years for old coins. Though I have found a few nice silver rings there. HH Andi

    Nice Barber. I haven't found any of those. And the ocean eats the coins up pretty badly. The big copper is from the shipwreck. With face facing to the right it's a George III. Congrats. Most people don't get one on their first trip. It took me from August to Thanksgiving before I found one, but I don't go in the water - until yesterday. Didn't get one yesterday.

    For a spot that so many people claim to "hammer", I'd say you proved that no spot is ever hunted out. NICE finds!!!!

    Between the Ocean waves, Nor-Easters, hurricanes,
    and Beach workers moving sand, I'd imagine things change Regularly.

    You got right back in the grove from last season with finding silver. What a way to start off the year. Good job.

    Tragic Faithful Steward , read the doomed ship was within 80 yards of the beach . Terrible lost of 180 looking for hope in a new land. Been out there searchin' for those half pennies from the Coin beach wreck .My hunting bud , JT , found at least a dozen after storms . one hour ,to cross over Del. bay to Lewes on the ferry from Cape May . Then another 30 - 40 minute drive from Lewes , Del. to Coin beach . Not bad at all , obviously , one is better than none . Old silver after a Nor' Easter is always a plus .

    I'd gladly travel 200 miles if there were a chance of finding nice old coins like this. But, if I had a choice of going dirt fishing or ocean fishing, I'd prefer dirt. It tends to treat silver better.

    The only reason I'd choose ocean would be for the possibilities of rings/doubloons etc.

    Still, as long as you had a good time, that's what it's really all about.

    Nice finds!

    HH!

    thanks ! Mike & all

    The Faithful Steward
    The Faithful Steward left Londonderry, Ireland, on July 9, 1785, for Philadelphia with 249 passengers, mostly Irish immigrants, many related. On September 1, 1785, Captain Connolly McCausland threw a party to celebrate the journey’s end. He and the first mate imbibed so much that they passed out. The ship ran aground on the Mohoba Bank near Indian River Inlet. The force knocked two children to the deck, killing them instantly. Though the ship was fewer than 150 yards from shore, many passengers could not swim, and the waves threatened to sweep away those who could. Bodies washed up on the beach. Only 68 people survived the disaster. Of the 100 women and children on board, seven survived. Many perished within sight of survivors on the beach. Along with passengers, the Faithful Steward carried about 400 barrels of British pennies and halfpennies. It is thought that these are the coins that wash ashore near Delaware Seashore State Park, giving rise to the name Coin Beach.
