Wow wasn't expecting to pull this out!!! Wasn't that deep, about 5 inches or so. Date is 1929, so that's 91 years old!!! This is my third oldest coin found!!! Now that big of a deal for you veterans but super exciting for me. I'll be going back for sure!!! Maybe on my days off when I get my wisdom teeth pulled.

Congratulations on a nice find. Keep swingin and there are many more exciting finds waiting for you. It may have been a shocker to you, but you will find that those older finds can be anywhere. It is not about what is there now, it is about what was there before. There is a ton of history in the ground just waiting to be found. Stay safe and keep swingin.

I agree! I've found amazing stuff at seemingly modern sites! I assume that many others only go to historic sites thinking they will find super old stuff. But that's where everyone goes and the treasure gets rarer and rarer to find. Sites that don't have any old building around it may have less to find, but treasure is there for the taking because no other person hunts there.

When I find super old coins in soccer fields predating the soccer field I always wonder what was there before.
A lil research might tell you more.Here in Vancouver, Washington we have some soccer fields that are behind Ft Vancouver. It turns out that it use to be their garbage pits. Ultra fun. I love to hit those fields after a good rain. I always pull out deep stuff.

The problem for me is finding out info on the site I'm hunting. Unless it's a park or old historic site I can't find any info.

That's a very nice find Mygirl. You just never know what's going to come out of the ground. Keep at it, and next time it's going to be an old silver!

Here are some resources to help you
This is one of my favorites to research what was there before

https://www.historicaerials.com/

These have also helped me in the past:

https://www.oldmapsonline.org/
https://www.loc.gov/maps/collections/
https://www.topozone.com/
https://zoom.earth/
https://www.davidrumsey.com/


When you do research you come out on top.

Good luck to you

Cheers

Thanks! I'll check them out. I've had others on this site send me links.... the problem is a lot of them are for the u.s. only.... I live in canada so it doesn't help. But I'll give em a try. Appreciate you taking the time to help me thanks

Thanks for checking out my post! I haven't done nearly enough MDing this year... haven't feel motivated for some reason. But now with this good find I'm all in a rush to get more hunts in before the ground freezes up. Hope your doing well. :)
