    Hunted a Cape Coral park this afternoon...Wheaty and old copper pennies

    I only had a couple of hours to hunt this afternoon, so I went to a local park near our vacation rental. On a hunch, I went to the far end of the park by the dumpster and landscape debris piles and started swinging. First signal with the Equinox was a solid 25-26 tone, and dug a 1955D wheat penny about 4Ē deep. That set the pace for the rest of the time digging old style beaver tails, copper pennies going back to 1965 & 1968 and a 1979 dime. Pretty much told the tale of just how little this park must be detected.

    We only have three more full days left befor heading back to NE Ohio and our own bed, so Iím not sure if I can get back here until next year. Weíve booked three weeks for next February, so Iíll get to work more of the parks here and in Fort Myers. Tomorrow weíre hitting the Fort Myers big beach, so that should be a good 5-6 hours of hunting. Hopefully it will be a good hunt, but hunting in shorts and sunglasses beats the snow hunting Iíll be doing when I get home.

    Big trash day today as well!!

    Any day of hunting, whether good or bad is better than not hunting at all

    Some days are just that way. Lots of old aluminum today. But the copper pennies give you hope for better finds, just knowing they’re older...the wheaty was the clincher. Sure beats getting skunked!

    I'm thinking there is a mercurial dime or a gold ring waiting for you in that park.

    Good luck with the Fort Myers parks.
    Do you know how old the Cape is?...... a 1955D wheat, might be the oldest coin in that city.

    I just read a brief history of the Cape...you’re absolutely right about that coin. Very interesting history, and still growing. Thanks for letting me know that tidbit.
