    1912-S Liberty Head V Nickel from a "hunted out park"

    Went back to the old "hunted out park" with a fellow tnet member. Wasn't long after we arrived and I got an iffy midtone on the AT Pro reading 8 inches deep. Dug a plug and approximately seven inches down on one side of the hole I see a coin on edge. Pulled it out and I could clearly identify it as a 1912 v nickel. Felt like an eternity waiting to see if it had the "S" mintmark. Haha! Too bad it's sooo toasted! BUT, I bet I'll never find another one. Pretty cool!

    Toasted or not, it is a heck of a good find. I hope the "hunted out" parks here will yield that kind of bounty.

    That is in decent shape for a dug nickel that is 102 years old. I bet it would still be worth $50 or more just to fill an album. I have found my fair share of nickels in hard hit areas, because they get "cherry picked" for the high sounds. My friend has found two V nickels, a war nickel and a Buffalo at this one church we have detected that has be hit hard for years. I've found 6 Jefferson nickels ranging in dates from the 30s to the 50s there.

    Yeah I'm sure someone would buy it if I put it up for sale. I think I'll just keep it to show in my shadow box of finds from that site. I actually like digging the mid tones on older areas. Interesting finds most of the time!
