    I am just posting this, but I just went from a 250 to the AT MAX a serious upgrade 2 weeks ago! I got this beauty in nearly mint condition here in CT at a ball field within the hour! This is my first Barber Dime
  3. Silver dimes trifecta

    Well, I came up short on getting my first grand slam. I'd recently been hunting a back corner of one of my favorite parks and finding wheats. I returned yesterday evening and dug a nice Merc first hole. Three more wheats, a '41 nickel and a Rosie. Last keeper was a well worn Barber dime...
  4. My first Barber Half Dollar

    I got to slip out for a bit yesterday evening and was hunting the back yard of one of my neighbors up the street. There were prior homesteads in the same location and and it's produced a few goodies before. Among a bunch of scattered brass lamp parts and old mason jar lids if found my first...
  5. I'd have called you a liar.

    A couple of weeks ago I started a thread about possibly taking a detecting road trip and tried to get other TNET members involved. Unfortunately, though not unexpectedly, treasure hunters being treasure hunters, not many ideas or invites were offered. That's ok though because it turned out to be...
  6. We've waged The Silver War

    Amanda and I have officially waged war on silver. Particularly silver coins. Sure we'll take silver jewelry and gold but this silver war is personal. The first coin in our sights is a mercury dime and if you make it far enough through this video you may see us detect our first one. The first...
  7. My first barber, and my oldest coin.

    I decided to go out last night after work. I hit a park that has been yielding me a lot of silver for no apparent reason. About three minutes in (no exaggeration), I dig my first hole. I was slightly hesitant, as the signal was not as solid as I normally like. Anyway, I cut the plug and about...
  8. Five Barber day

    I found myself today, out on the field. It was a mild sunny day in December, in good old Massachusetts. There I stood with my E-trac in one hand, and a nice steamy Cumberland Farms coffee in the other. As I stood there and took in the scenery I knew it was going to be a good day. Aside from...
  9. new to TN. A day of firsts!

    Hey guys. Today I hunted a small park located in a northern suburb of Chicago. I was able to cross some finds off my bucket list including a barber dime, indian head penny, and a token. After doing some research I determined that the token was to a vintage peep show joint called bare assets...

  11. Barber and Indian Artifacts

    Returned to the 1870 tree farm house. Used my smaller coil today and found my first Barber dime! It was absolutely beautiful! Dug a few more wheats. Finished the day walking my creek site for Indiana artifacts. It has been challenging because the fields are no till. I found a reworked point...

    I didn't post a few weeks ago when I dug my first silver coin, so this actually makes my second so far. There is a grassy lot right in town where I live where 2 houses used to stand. I had never hit that spot because I didn't know whose land it was. When I was informed the town owned it I was...
  14. Former mining village and fathers yard

    Former mining village and father's yard Today I decided to hunt in an area where company houses from one of the Pennsylvania coal co mines use to stand. The houses were demolished in the 1940s I beleive. Today was just a test hunt and I ended up with a pocket knife and a small token or button...
  15. My best yard hunt this year.

    Found these in a 20' by 30' area at the front of a yard. The back of the yard turned to fill after that area and these all came from the small area in the front. It was a good day!
