For the past two nights I’ve been digging a street tear. First night I scooped up a 1879 Barber Dollar! Second night they tore up much more and I got 6 silvers, including a Walker and a Barber quarter! I also found the toasted remains of an Egyptian revival pocket sundial.

Umm what kind of street and where?!? That's where I need to be. Grats squirrel grats..
Central Michigan, in the old part of town. Best street tear out I’ve detected.

The sidewalk tearouts and parking strip scrapes seem to be the most productive for me. The things I found in the actual street are pretty toasted,
