    1900 V Nickel, 1945 Merc, 1950 Roose, 1910 & 1950 Wheat, 925 China Ring etc.

    My first V Nickel dated 1900.

    Here’s the story.

    I spotted this famous SoCal guy and his brother hunting the demo in the photo, one of the guys is not pictured. The spot that they where hunting is about two blocks away from the spot I was going to hunt.

    So I went on and started hunting the area I had planed on. After about an hour or so they show up at my spot. I talked to them and they told me they had found a couple of barber dimes and several other keeper coins not counting more than a dozen wheat’s.

    I was also told that was the second day for one of them at that spot. One had a DFX and the other guy in the photo had an Explorer SE. I told them that my main quest was gold, but I find coins while at it. And would they mind if I went to their claim, they said sure it was ok.

    The pile of pulltabs and bottle caps came from a spot about 12” around. The only reason I dug them was that I found the1900V nickel on the outer edge. I also found the 1959 Roosevelt dime in that zone. I pulled the 1910 wheat and the 1945 mercury dime near trash too. I could clearly hear all of my targets, or at least they gave off a sound that made me investigate.
    The right machine, for the right job.

    and sorry for being long winded.

    way to go. i headed out to that very lot today with my buddy and we each found a merc and a few wheats. then we hit fairmount park and he got 6 more silvers and i got three.

    i'll bet that lot gets better when they remove all the debris and scrape it a bit more.

    congrats on your finds!

    Hi oknorom. You got that right. I'll surely be keeping tabs on that spot.

    If you go back to Lake Evans any time soon, try on top of the new
    irrigation system that is now covered up around that rose garden (they used PVC pipe), but still fresh. I found a 43 war nickel, a 59 silver quarter, a 1960 dime and a few wheat's when they first started. My weapon of choice is the GoldBug 2, a dedicated gold machine but I find coins too.

    no need for an other "photo" post -- its a early 1900 s time frame Navy button -- the were many makers who supplied them to the navy ---- the name sould be stamped on the back around the rim -- this will help "fine tune" the date of manufacture --to have the gilt --(thin gold colored plating ) in such good shape is a bonus -- being they were for use in "salt water" areas the gilt or plating was often heavy but --they still tended to get worn down quite a bit --nice find -- Ivan
