Well, I took a break from my regular spots as of late - mostly tot lots and schools - and went back to another of my better-producing spots, easements near downtown with parking meters...

Spent about 2 hours, and found over $5, all clad... in some instances there were more targets than I could even easily retrieve - my 8" coil was hitting multiple targets at once (gotta get a sniper coil one of these days)...

Most of these easements are very old, and once I get the 1266-X out of hock (and the ground softens up a bit), I'm gonna hit these hard... I know there's some old silver in these easements, as I have found Barber stuff there before... There's a ton of trash in these easements, but the more trash, the more stuff, as I've learned over the years - just gotta be persistent... There's a Seated coin in one of these, I just know it (haven't found a Seated coin yet in over 25 years)...

Anyway, will keep y'all updated...

Another good spot to find coins are newspaper boxes if there is grass or flowers around it. While working at a newspaper in Macon Georgia, we had a water line break. I called in a plumber to dig the line up and repair. We had several newspaper boxes sitting on the edge of a flower bed. They had to dig up the water line which was routed by the boxes. The two guys doing the digging had a ball finding quarters. They must have found 8 or 10 dollars in quarters.
