The first coin of 2012

3 Jan

I hunted for six hours today looking for my first silver of 2012. I was very hopeful when the first coin I dug up was a 1928D wheat cent. However, for the rest of the hunt, I found only clad.

The city park where I hunted is very old and should contain plenty of old coins and although I found no silver coins today,  I remain optimistic about my chances of finding 75 silver coins this year.

    75 Silvers in 2012!! That’s a good goal. I’m sure you can do it! 🙂 That’s still a pretty good first coin for 2012 even if it wasn’t silver. It’s in good shape for being from the 20’s! My oldest wheat is from 1935 and it is in terrible shape.

    Good luck! Can’t wait to see your progress!
