  2. HAPPY 210th BIRTHDAY ABRAHAM LINCOLN !!..

    I would like to apologise to Mr. Lincoln for the abomination known as the "zincoln" cent ! An absolute disgrace , and in no way befitting the stature of this good man ! I believe that this nation was very blessed that President Lincoln was leading us through arguably the darkest period of our...

  4. No pics , so it didn't happen (...but it did ! )

    Got a box of half dollars on Thursday - Loomis long flat box . Upon opening it I saw a Franklin, and a Walker, and two silver Ken's right away .After the dust settled , I had pulled 50 ninety percent silvers and 5 forty percenters ! So if I remember correctly this would be about half of a dream...
  5. Y'all in New Hampshire have it made !....

    I just made a quick trip to the Alton ,NH. area, to visit family . I hadn't been out there for 35 years, from what i could see walking and driving around , there were dream detecting spots everywhere ! Old easements , tree stands ,tiny town parks ,ancient looking stone walls everywhere ...

    Have y'all seen this ? I think this is so good ! They don't diminish the hobby (addiction) they use really good gear ! Clearly they actually know how to do it properly too , I just find the dialogue and relationships really funny !!!
  9. I've not been skunked searching nearly 50 penny boxes...how bout you ?

    I should qualify my title statement by saying that I only hunt Wheats , Indians, and early Canadians (1920's -1964) I would of course pull any other obvious collectibles. I have been skunked a lot with dime and half dollar boxes.

  11. Well, that didn't last very long !...

    Earlier this morning I posted a thread about re-rolling centers possibly culling silver halfs- then about an hour ago I picked up 10 rolls of Loomis "green gold " wrapped half dollars and ....yup there was a1967 Ken. Which completely trashed my theory that these particular rolls were being...
  12. Let's hear your theories about Silver Halfs being culled ...

    I have recently been giving this topic some thought due to my experience with boxes of halfs from Loomis, with rolls wrapped in a "green gold" colored wrapper. After 8 or 10 boxes of these , and numerous of these rolls purchased at teller counters - with no sign of 40 or 90 percenters , I began...
  13. I'm reaching the breaking point with Oak Island ...how bout you ?

    Does it make any sense if you are hiding a treasure in the 17th century , to dig down 200 feet What's wrong with two feet down ( or one for that matter ?) I get sucked in because they sometimes do surface detecting - then I feel like such a sucker ! Anybody else getting disgusted with this...
  14. List that coin (or type series) that has eluded you after several years detecting .

  19. Curious to know why so few women enjoy metal detecting ?....

    I was just reading a post here in which the writer was complaining of his wife's general disinterest in his finds and it got me yet again wondering why metal detecting is overwhelmingly a male hobby/obsession ? I would be really interested in hearing some ladies chime in on this...
