    Cool Went back to old wharf site I got LG cents from

    last month in saltwater on cape cod
    waters weren't ideal but made the best of it
    had a hard time finding the old pilings area with visibility not being the greatest -
    2nd target was a large hit - I clicked from all metal to ID mode to see if it was large iron or something worth digging
    ID went low -mid then high with each sweep over it - sometimes that means more than one object - so I started scooping
    bout a foot down I hit an old brick - old bricks from up here - early ones - have metal in them and go off like silver dimes
    I removed it - signal was bigger than that - scooped down another 6 inches and got a conglomerate - ended up being an old pocket knife
    rechecked hole and got another signal was surprised to see large silver disc in my scoop - walking liberty half
    pays to dig it all -
    surprise for the day (well there were 2) - got a faint signal in the rocks that were under where the wharf would have been
    this is where I got 2 Large cents last month - saw a copper disc and I got excited - thought it might be a half cent but then thought 2 cent piece
    bingo - 2 center - my first from saltwater
    not to long after I got another nice signal not to far from what was left from the wharf pilings and came up with another old coin - it was black and I swiped with my thumb
    and saw one cent and then noticed its thickness - oh yea - a fatty ...1863 and it came out in beautiful shape - it was XF when lost
    I did get an old gold band - a older silver ring - brass old bracelet
    keepers I ended up with
    1942 walk lib half
    1941 sil. quarter
    1943 sil.quarter
    1939 merc
    1936 merc
    1946 sil.Roos.
    1945-P sil. nickel
    Buffalo nickel
    2 cent piece
    1863 IH penny
    got an old brass wedding band (probably form a fisherman working on the wharf)
    more bronze nails/spikes ...more lead fishing net weights ...some brass sail grommets and a large rosette
    amongst other old stuff
    looking forward to going back - there's a lot of large iron out there - can be tough to work
    but I know there are more goodies under and next to some of the junk
    hoping to get some period silver eventually
    I know 2c is rough but still cool for me to find in the water -have gotten good ones on land
    but finding this one and another fatty (3rd one from there) gives hope for what other oldies may be out there


    after light cleaning


    junk minus larger conglomerates

    Looks like you're dialled in on the good stuff amongst the brick and trash, well done once again and worthy of another return hunt.

    the ring in my palm with coins is gold - ring in first pic next to the gold band - is brass and I believe it might be
    around 100+ yrs old
    I think it might have belonged to a wharf worker - it was out as far as I could go at low tide

    nice work!
    Im in 5-6 feet of water at low tide (mask & snorkel)
    - hunting saltwater spot that is a small beach now but was site of a wharf in the mid 1800s into the 1900s
    they used small row boats and schooners and mostly fished with nets here

    Cant elaborate - would give spot away to others - but would need a helicopter to get my hookah in there
