    Cracked open local park to find silver dimes and relics!

    You know the story, a major local park seems like a lost cause after years of being detected. Although, I occasionally had found wheats and some older relics there, I had never spent much time detecting this park. Well, a few nights ago I put on the 8x6 coil and went there for a quick hunt. I only dug 6 or so coins. Once home, I started rinsing off the coins and discovered one was a Barber dime! Between getting dark when I dug it and it being so crusty and dirty it didn't look like silver coming out of the ground.

    I was able to go back the next day for few hours and managed 2 more silver dimes, a Roise and a Merc. Finally this morning (after spending an hour and a half and only digging two Memorial pennies) I dug another Merc.

    Its only the second Barber dime I have dug and its kinda rough but I'll take it

    Still looking for a Barber quarter.....

    I soaked the 19 tag in vinegar to remove the rusty rivets and hammered it flat.

    Nothing is ever hunted out. I spent two years in my own 60 x 80 backyard and dug over 200 coins. Persistence pays off.

    Looks like some nice finds Squirrel. That General motors token looks like a Pontiac "Chief of the sixes" token. Like the Barber also.
