    Talking Finding a half dollar makes for a good day!

    You know how they say that finding a half dollar while metal detecting makes it a great day? It does!

    I went to a local park to search the mulch play area to see if I could find anything. The regular ground is so dry that it's practically concrete, so I have been hunting these kinds of areas lately. Anyway, there was a big event there two days ago, so I figured I'd check at least the playground out. Glad I did! I came out with about $4 worth of clad, some a few inches deep, some of it barely covered by mulch and some (mostly the pennies) just sitting there in the open! After a while, I was just walking with my pinpointer on and when my ATPro chimed, I would scan the ground with the pinpointer, lock on the target and just pick it up.

    Anyway, one target was big and loud, pegging the high end of the spectrum. I pinpointed it, brushed some mulch away and found a Kennedy half! It's clad, but oh well...it's a half.

    Now I just need to scan the regular grounds...

    Congrats on the half dollar. I have only found two clad halves, but have found five silver ones. I am certain that silver half is in your future. Best of luck.

    Sounds like you had an easy hunt. Congrats on pulling that clad Kennedy and all the other coins. It adds up. Sometimes you just need to feed the obsession and a good clad hunt is often a good fix.
