Beach & Shallow Water Hunting
Hunted the beaches In Mississippi today, tide was running 2 ft above normal and the waves were more than I wanted fight. I decided to hunt from the edge of the water to the last high tide line. Was getting the usual light beach trash along with the occasional clad coin when I had a 23 on the nox and thought it?s a dime or a copper penny. I dug down about 8 inches and rinsed the sand out of the scoop, I took the coin out and thought it was a token. I rubbed my thumb across the back and saw one cent! I couldn?t believe I found my first large cent, and when I turned it over I could read the date, 1845. I went back to check my hole before I filled it in and got a 28/29 signal next to where I just dug the large cent. The target was deep, more than 12 inches. Once I had the target in my scoop I rinsed it and out popped another, this one was a little more worn but I could still read the date, 1847.

A little farther down the beach I found an old bullet which I?m hoping someone can help identify. I did find some pieces of old brick in the water so I?m guessing that there was house there at one time. 2D1B06FC-4DC3-4B15-8C09-1A3F7D13DCC9.jpeg AB5AD474-DDD9-4E53-B046-798D0A45EFE7.jpeg C313A99D-940E-4990-8CB1-15C5E6E54D2F.jpeg BF729E0F-9A4E-442C-BC5F-14731702F6ED.jpeg 84D3731E-45AB-4888-9A85-AAE1B1AB46DB.jpeg 0FFDD953-002B-467D-A961-70158305EB38.jpeg 43067692-E62B-4B4C-B27D-42F6533F3539.jpeg 16C1F5B6-28F5-452A-A183-F1CA56BD6710.jpeg
