    Nickle Day at the Lakeshore

    Back to the lakeshore today to the same stretch where I've found several old coins this past week. Thought today I'd be skunked though, an hour into it all I had was a couple of memorial cents and a half gallon back of junk. But I was hoping for just one more old coin so I kept walking, and digging. I was alternating between the muck shoreline and the higher up sand where I'd found my last Barber dime and I got a iffy signal on the Tiger Shark. Dug a deep hole to get the target and picked up a nickle sized coin. Usually just put them away but was so desperate for anything good, I took this one to the water, washed it off and darned if I didn't see a buffalo. No pic of that yet. Its badly discolored and green, so its soaking in Worchesire sauce which is supposed to clean them up.

    Another hour, a jefferson nickle, clad dime, a few memorial cents and a whole lot more junk and I was ready to call it quits. But you know the "one more good hit" that keeps you going. So finally got a strong signal mid beach and up came another nickle sized coin, which came out the sand pretty clean, although dark. Turned out to be a 1905 V nickle in pretty decent shape.

    This brings my shoreline finds for the last couple of weeks to: 1896 indian head penny, 1910 Canadian silver 5 cent piece, 1892 Barber Dime, 1913 Barber dime, no date Buffalo head nickle and 1905 V Nickle, a silver ring and a copper ring.

    This is all from about a 150 foot shoreline section of a heavily hunted lake/park. Apparently, though, no one has hunted where I've been for a while or maybe they're only looking for big silver and walking right over this stuff. Fine with me.
