A Mercury Dime, some Wheat Cents and a 1930's coin from Mexico - well done !
It's a great site - places like that are getting harder to find - keep going back till you find nothing at all !
I'd try to search the entire area and cover the same ground a few times, coming in from different directions.

Good Luck !

The site produced good finds (silver dime, some wheat cents) thus proven. Potential would mean that he hasn't yet found anything which isn't the case here.
Semantics,word games guys. Yes,the finds could mean proven,also the finds could mean the potential for more good finds. Must we play these games in every post now?

Tesoro compadre, which can find needles, but looking for something with a bigger coil/detects deeper, waterproof salt/fresh user friendly.

Well done on the silvers, and copper.
Nothing better than getting quality finds close to one's own doorstep.

That Mexican (?) coin was it near same size as others?
Then, it may have been exchanged as US currency, by mistake.... -or-
There was a fella from cross the border, working the fields as common
laborer....? A story in each of these, for sure....!
Depression-era coins and WWII also
