    Dream Day At A Dream School UPDATE

    Hi all,

    After a pretty good day yesterday, I figured I would take the day off and relax..I had no idea where I was going to since I hunted so many places to death multiple times since the year began. I started out with a couple of schools I hadn't been to for a while and found a Sacagawea dollar and a nice metal bookmark by the monkey bars, with a few quarters and dimes here and there. There wasn't much else since the weather over the last few weeks was either too cold or too wet. Even when the days in between were nice, the kids won't use the playgrounds if they're too wet or muddy.

    There was this one school (probably developed in the 70's) I hunted some years ago, but I only tried the tot lot and side of the school where some playground equipment was located. This time I decided to try the main field in back.

    The grounds behind the school was quite large, but the thick grass I remember during the warmer months way back when was much easier to dig through since the growing season hasn't yet begun.

    I began pulling up dimes, then quarters, and before long I found a good sized ring. As I rubbed the mud off some of the gold color began to come off on my fingers You don't often find a real gold ring at an elementary school, so I wasn't really surprised it was costume.

    Then the quarters started to come! At one point, it was as if someone had a bucket of change and started throwing it all over the place! I didn't have my pouch so I put all the coins in my right pocket..by the time I was ready to go I could hardly walk straight..I ended up with 2 more rings (one was silver) and 172 coins total for the entire morning (54 quarters, 41 dimes, 9 nickels, 64 pennies, 1 Canadian cent, 1 Sac dollar, one Kennedy half and a 1952 silver Rosie) for a total of $20.30. I found the silver dime at the end when I was ready to leave and was surprised to find it..I thought that was the icing on the cake right there!


    The first ring I found is the one on the left..I thought it was real for a moment!


    Some of the schoolyard finds were a part of a heavy silver chain, a butterfly bookmark, a dog tag, a flattened penny, some buttons, a pendant and a keychain that flashes on and off and says "SAKURA - BEST FRIEND ROBOT".



    The second ring I found (.925 silver) says "TRUE LOVE WAITS". It was on top of the ground and I saw it just as my coil passed over it!


    Twenty bucks in change was an incredible amount for one morning!


    A little variety adds to the spice of MDing life! These were welcome sights.


    The '52 Rosie was a good way to end my day.

    I was sure I broke my personal quarter record for a day but I tied it (54). I found 120 of 'em in the last 3 hunts!

    Hope you all had a good weekend, mine was so great (even though I can hardly move)! And for you guys/gals still waiting for the big thaw, your time is coming, so hang in there!

    Nat

    See.....I told you to go back out today!! "Nah, I've hunted everything to death, no place for me to go.....I want to let them build up....wah, wah!

    Now you will listen to me when I tell you something!

    You had an awesome day Nattie, I'm not telling you to go out tomorrow though, you should probably go to work instead!

    You did so good with the keepers too! I think you are the only detectorist in your area. Your clad pulls are awesome! Congrats on another great day!

    Moon you inspired me to go out today so thank you! I had to really think last night and I'm telling you I had absolutely no game plan..I hate driving around aimlessly, wondering where to go..it was only this morning as I was coming back from one of the schools I remembered that school..I actually made an illegal U-turn, went through a shopping center parking lot, made a left onto the main road and headed for that school..it was just one of those last minute things where you hope things will work out. I was really lucky.

    Thanks Texan..my wife said that was the theme mentioned at our church during Valentine's week..maybe it was lost around that time since it wasn't buried yet.

    Thanks Harry, I'm sure the school never had a coil sweep over it until I came along..it wasn't an old school and there was just so much to find. I didn't want to leave but the place wore me out. I'll probably go back when the kids are on summer break to see what else I can find.
