    NICKEL TRIFECTA

    On Friday I visited a spot up in the Bronx that I know was once part of a turn of the century farm. Besides a few pieces of silver, this spot has given up some rein guides and horse tack. So I figured, what the heck. You never know what I going to turn up. I was using the E-Trac.
    About an hour into the hunt I got a signal at about 8 inches that could be a nickel. 13-13 is a solid nickel signal but this signal was 10-11. Being that it was so deep, I'm thinking maybe a pieces of gold?? Sure enough, at about 8 inches, I pulled out an encrusted nickel size coin. after cleaning and magnification at home, it turns out to be a toasted "V" Nickel. About an hour later, I got another iffy Nickel signal around 8 inches deep. Sure enough, at 8 inches, out come a crusty Buffalo. Cleaning this one at home exposed a 1930 date. I also recovered 4 Jefferson Nickels. The oldest was a 1947.
    I got another visit from the Park's Enforcement Police. I showed them my permit, they wished me luck, and were on their way. The funny thing is, I had just dug out 4 bullets that were deliberately buried at about 4 inches under a good sized rock.

    The funny thing is that one of them says,, "You know you can't be digging holes in the park" I responded, "Well, that's not entirely true" as I handed him my permit. They read my permit, looked at my I.D., and then said, "Good luck"

    Nice find. Strange thing is with all the bullets we find in NYC parks you would think Enforcement would be more concerned about that then our permits LOL

    Congrats and HH

    Congrats on that sweet trifecta ATW. I am surprised that you didn't pull a single clad nickle to make it a quadrafecta That site deserves another hunt.
