    Dark times are up ahead. Cold, darkness, solitude and dread...

    The cold breath of winter beat on my neck while I tried to sniff out a few more targets at the park. There were a couple of areas that were frozen solid. One of them coughed up a silver after I toiled with the ground for a few minutes.

    I found a few wheats and 30's/40's pennies and even a couple of musketballs. Here are the highlights.

    I was surprised to find this one. This is my oldest from the park so far. -- Philip Broke Halifax Halfpenny



    Frozen silver. 1913 Canada 5 Cents




    1924 Canada 5 Cents




    Happy hunting... if you get back out again.

    Looks good! I don't think I've seen that Halifax half penny before, pretty cool. Nice fish scale, I never get tired of finding those. How many is that for you this year?

    I'm jealous that you are still hunting. It's been 9 days for me...only 150 more to go *sigh*

    Any park giving up tokens would be on my list, the modern coins would only be the gravy.

    Glad you are persevering, and the season is hanging on for you!

    Ya squeezing out the last few days of MD'ing here too. High temp 30 with a 25 mph "cool" breeze today, and I will be out there trying to pull from the ground my last few treasures for the season!
    Think about it this way, all the freezing and thawing in the next few months will be moving those underground goodies up closer to the surface, so in the spring we have a new crop of goodies! But then videos are good...sigh
