    1901 V Nickel, 1909 S Penny, 1914 Barber, and 1919 S Mercury found today.

    I purchased the Equinox 800 last month and I have been able to hunt a handful of times (aside from a couple of wheat pennies, nothing else worth mentioning). Today, I went to a local park for a couple of hours and found four keepers with the new detector. The first I found was a 1919 “S” Mercury dime! I have had a silver drought lately and this was great to see! After I took a picture of it, I started swinging again and about five feet away from the Mercury, I had another good tone. After cutting a plug, out popped a 1914 Barber dime!

    I figured I was in a great spot and started digging every signal in a five yard area. One of the signals I dug was a 1901 V nickel (whoot whoot)! The last signal for the day I dug was a wheat penny. It had been in the ground for awhile because of the green patina that covered it. It was too thick to tell a year. When I got home, I washed it off and saw that it was a 1909 “S”! I have been working on the back to see if it is the “special” one. Still can’t tell after having it soak for a few hours. It would be great if I see VDB! If I find that it has that, I will post updated pictures. Until then, here are some pics from today.

    Way to go on a nice haul there! Thats a day that most of us would take tomorrow given the chance. I got my first 1909-S Wheatie early this year. Wasnt the VDB variety unfortunately but they are still cool to find regardless.

    that's awesome. just a plain 1909-S wheaty is a rare and valuable coin. Hope you discover the coveted VDB, but even if you don't you still have a winner. Congrats!

    Nice recoveries. What part of Arizona are you in? I don't want any specific park, just general location. Most of what I dig up out here looks like your coins. This soil is not kind to coins.

    I hunt in and around the south east of Arizona. You are right about the soil down here. Not nice to coins.
