Lunch-Time Hunt Delight

27 Dec

I had planned on going to my silver park for lunch but due to unforeseen circumstances, me and my XP Deus metal detector had to go somewhere closer. This turn of events was fortuitous for me.

I decided to revisit a site near work where I found two Indian heads back in March of this year. Several relics and tokens came out of this site as well plus a handful of wheat cents. So, after about 20 minutes of digging house debris (there were houses there back in the day) I hit a sweet, large signal with a high VDI. Normally, this kind of signal turns out to be trash of some kind so I began to dig carelessly. Oh am I sorry I did that! At just about 6 inches deep I felt metal. I roughly sank the Predator into the hole and pulled out the object…

Yep my friends, you are looking at a nice 1945 Walking Liberty half dollar coin. I kick myself for not having been more careful.

This is only my second Walker ever and the first with the Deus. Now I know what kind of signal they give.

So it seems I am on a silver streak which is cool because Saturday I am hunting a pre-1900 church site, now a farm field planted with winter wheat. What this means is that any coins found therein are guaranteed to be old. Come on Seated!!!

Thank you for looking!
