    Finished up the kiddie coin spill with 214 more coins

    I went back to finish up the last part of the giant coin spill today. In 2 hours I cleaned up the last 3x4 foot area of the spill. I call it a spill, but it could also be considered a dump. I am pretty sure with all the sawdust I am finding, even a few piles of fresh sawdust on the surface, that this is the result of a kiddie pool sawdust party game. You fill the pool with saw dust and sprinkle in coins for the kiddies to search for and keep. When I was done I always sifted the sawdust to get the missed coins before I threw out the dust. But whoever did this game, just dumped the dust because the place was loaded with coins. As before, I just pinpointed and troweled my way along swingin the CZ21 over the areas I was done to get any coins missed in my search (when you dig out a pile of dirt sometimes it has multiple coins in it and I missed a few searching the piles, when I used the detector I caught the misses).

    Today I found 214 coins in 2 hours with a face value of $6.73 which makes a grand total of 573 coins in 5 hours, total value $21.24 searching a 3x10 foot area. That is 114 coins per hour, what a spill! Among today’s coins I did find 3 euro coins, a 1, a 2 and a 5 euro cent as well as a 1941 wheatie. I also found an aluminum grommet, 3 nails and a piece of can slaw.

    After I finished the spill I still had an hour left so I continued on detecting along the fence line for another hour and managed to find an addition 34 coins with a face value of $2.58. I also found an aluminum tag with the number 89(or 68 if you turn it over). I also found some pieces of fence tie wire. It is made of aluminum and gives enough of a good signal, you have to dig it to be sure if it is good or not (at least I can recycle it). I almost always find some when detecting close to chain link fences.

    Again nothing fancy, but a lot of gas money and good old social distancing exercise for the old man. Pennsylvania and Maryland have loosened up their restrictions so I am off to the scout camp tomorrow to clean up more camping areas. Thanks for looking, stay safe and may your coil lead you to good things.

    I admit it can be a little boring, but you never really know what will come out next so there’s is always that element of anticipation and the hope you will find a nice surprise. In my detecting years I have had a nice number of pleasant surprises. Stay safe and keep swingin.

    This is actually the 4th or 5th one I have found. The others were a few dozen coins with sawdust around the coins. This one had way more coins than anything I have found in the past. Thanks Tommy, stay safe and keep swingin.

    I found one of those at a local park. I pulled almost $30 bucks ! An old timer told me it was a place where there was a hay pile and that people threw coins in for kids. I was told of another park that did the same thing but it had been heavily landscaped.

    Cool.
    I once discovered a kiddy find sand pit at the beach but these guys must have been loaded because they used all dollars, susan b, sacs and presidents. Some of them were painted green, yellow or red, for what reason I don't know. All told I found 57 of them in an hour or so.

    Just a guess, but from having done a few seeded metal detecting hunts, I'd say the painted ones were prize tokens that you turned in after the hunt in exchange for something better... hopefully.
