  1. Cool coal token.

    Got out for half a day hunting around an old homesite that had a cellar and well. I started hunting around the rocks that supported the home. I got a good signal and dug a token with in the first 10 minutes. About a hour later after several bullets and a few mason jar tops. I stumbled across...

  4. 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.

    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...

  9. No detector, first wheat

    So I was digging a couple of 1 foot holes in the garden to plant some hops for home brewing and I noticed a coin in one of the holes. I picked it up and saw it was a penny and assumed it was a stinkin' lincoln because this house was built in the 70's. I cleaned it off anyways and to my surprise...
  10. 1944 wheat penny error?

    Hello! I found this unusual wheat penny while I was CRH a while back. It looks crazy, the dye looks (how do I put this?) messed up and the coin seems to be faded some. I have a couple of pics of the penny. Sorry if these pics are bad!

  15. 24 Solid Rolls of Wheat Pennies - Whoa

    I couldn't believe it. I literally just made a bet with my GF the night before that I could fill up 3 whitman coin books, lincoln cents 1909 - 2013, by CRH only in the period of one year (I know, very unlikely). So I stop at a few banks on my way home from her place. 2nd bank has $18 CWR. all...

    I'm not really sure what type of error this is. There seems to be a shelf on the one 5 that's there. I would say greased die but I see absolutely no trace of the other number, and all the other strikes are real strong. Any ideas??? I'm going to put this up on ebay, I'm thinking of starting...
